Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures
Grievance and disciplinary procedures are there to help you deal fairly and consistently with the full range of issues around employee misconduct or complaints from employees regarding the workplace. Clear and fair grievance and disciplinary policies are key to managing these.
We can draft or review your grievance and disciplinary procedures for you to ensure they’re robust and provide a clear process to follow when you need it.
We understand it can be difficult to know how much formal input is appropriate for the times when you can’t resolve potential disciplinary or grievance issues informally with a quiet word. We are happy to discuss specific issues with you to help you feel confident your organisation is reacting in the most appropriate way.
We can advise on a wide range of issues including behaviour that is likely to constitute gross misconduct, enabling you to summarily dismiss an employee, meaning you dismiss someone instantly without notice or pay in lieu of notice. We’ll also help you act within the ACAS Code of Practice and supporting guidance, which can assist in following a fair procedure and mitigate the risk of a successful claim against your organisation.
How can we help?
We appreciate that a ‘one size fits all’ approach isn’t what you need, so we can give you as much support as you need on a case-by-case basis. To mitigate the risk of a claim, we’ll be happy to work with you to ensure your response to any issue is thorough, fair and even-handed.
