Domestic Inquiry

What is Domestic Inquiry ?

‘Domestic Inquiry’ is an investigation done by the employer in case of a dispute between an employee and the aforementioned employer. It usually happens in cases where the employee has been accused of misconduct and is now challenging the decision of the employer.
It is important to understand that domestic inquiry is simply an evidence-gathering process. It does not provide the final verdict. It simply collects the evidence and catalogues them and presents them as reports in front of the senior management or whoever is administering the judgement in the case.
As the inquiry is done by the employer, the employee is also allowed to have his friends or union be a part of the inquiry committee. However, the handling of evidence will be done by the people appointed by the company only.
