Whatever may be the case, first you will havg to issue a letter of show-cause notice asking him why not the Management can take the disciplinary action against the mistake he has done it and mention that the concerned should send his/her reply within 3 days. You will have to get the reply from the employee for this notice within 3 days and if you have not received any reply issue the second letter refering the first show-cause notice also again with 2 days you should get the reply. If not last and final issue the third letter referring the previous 2 show-cause notices. Wait for a day and no reply even now, then the management can take action in the case of permanent employee irrespectively whether he / she is senior or junior.
In case of trainee what is the offer letter issued to the concerned trainee says. Pl. read the offer letter once again and you would have covered one clause similar to that " on any deviation from his regular duties or involving any kind of malpracticies
his services may be terminated with immkediate effect " . However, you may call the trainee and warn him if the mistake what he has done is pardonable one and if it is serious you may terminate him by giving a letter. Because he is a still trainee only and you need not issue any warning or show-cause notice to him.

Again Ramani here...
In case you get the reply from the permanent employee, you will have call for an enquiry at a date suitable to you. Before the qenquiry you will have to employee one Enquiry officer ( within the Company any senior employee may be an enquiry officer but not from HR). In the enquiry three should be present viz., (1) HR rep. 2) Enquiry Officer and (3) the Cncerned charge sheeter. At the enquiry HR and the Enquiry Officer can ask qauestions and take the clarifications from the charge sheeter. After the enquiry the Mangement decide accordingly.
