Disciplinary and Grievance Issues
In the dim and distant past, when an employee was guilty of misconduct it was considered fair to frog march that employee to the front of the building and tell them never to return. However, times have changed. Procedural fairness and the correct implementation of disciplinary and grievance procedures is now absolutely crucial.
A failure to follow correct procedures in disciplinary and grievance handling can lead to an uplift in compensation awarded by an Employment Tribunal of up to 25%.
Managers who implement the disciplinary and grievance processes require to be fully conversant with the procedural requirements required by law. MacRoberts can assist managers to understand and properly execute the role in context.
We offer an in-depth and entertaining training programme on this topic, which includes mock investigatory, disciplinary and grievance hearings, extending even to mock Employment Tribunals.
