Disciplinary & Grievance Support

Every good employer knows that trust and confidence is a two-way street, and that this is helped by having a proper process in place for handling unsatisfactory behaviour, performance or attendance.

Employers and employees should always seek to resolve disciplinary and grievance issues in the workplace. Where this is not possible employers and employees should consider using an independent third party to help resolve the problem.

Many potential disciplinary and grievance issues can be resolved informally. However, where an issue cannot be resolved informally then it may be pursued formally.

As a general rule employers should carry out any necessary investigations, to establish the facts of the case. Inform employees of the basis of the problem and give them an opportunity to put their case in response before any decisions are made. Employees should be allowed to be accompanied at any formal disciplinary or grievance meeting and should be allowed to appeal against any formal decision made.
