If they do not have a procedure in place they should follow the ACAS Code of Conduct.

In any disciplinary process, you should be allowed the right to be accompanied by a trade union representative or a colleague. You should be given an opportunity to put forward your version of events and your employer should listen to your views and give them consideration. If you receive a warning or if you are dismissed, you should be given the right to appeal that decision and the right to be accompanied to that meeting.

If a fair disciplinary procedure is not carried out, you may be able to argue that you have been unfairly dismissed (if you meet the relevant criteria). You may also be entitled to additional compensation for the failure to follow a proper process.
