Discipline and Grievance Procedures
Procedures relating to discipline and grievance provide the structure for a company to deal with these difficult issues if/when they arise.
Straight forward and well structured procedures, including mechanisms for dealing with complaints, can help to ensure a business is compliant with the law and follows the relevant ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) code of practice.
In addition evidence of strong discipline and grievance procedures can be compelling at an employment tribunal, or may prevent the matter reaching a tribunal in the first place.
Our employment team has a wealth of experience advising on and drafting discipline and grievance procedures, helping their clients to achieve solutions that ultimately minimise costs to the business and disruption to the services they provide.
