Disciplinary and Grievances
This is another 'popular' subject for advice, as well as being a policy 'must have' for employers.
The key thing to remember here is the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures.
This statutory Code of Practice sets out principles for handling disciplinary and grievance situations in the workplace.
Employment tribunals will take the Code into account when considering relevant cases and can adjust any awards made in relevant cases by up to 25% for unreasonable failure to comply with any provision of the Code.
So, discipline and grievances require a clear and transparent framework for dealing with the difficulties which may arise as part of the working relationship between you and your employees.
I can help you with disciplinary procedures and interviews, disputes and grievances, dealing with cases of conduct or gross misconduct, verbal and written warnings, and grievance procedures.
