The company (or employer) should, within 5 working days of the dismissal if in the UK, or within 5 working days of the seafarer's arrival in the UK if dismissed abroad, convene a hearing ashore to review the circumstances of the dismissal and decide whether it should be confirmed or (in the case of a permanent employee) whether the contract of employment should be terminated. If requested by the seafarer, an official of his/her union or a fellow employee should be invited to be present at the hearing. The seafarer should be advised in writing of the outcome of the hearing.
