Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures

When problems occur at work, especially if the relationship between you and your employer breakdown, it can be a hugely stressful time in your life.

It is important to seek professional advice to ensure you are treated fairly and receive support through the processes involved.

Grievances are when an employee has a complaint, concern or problem about any aspect of their work.  The issues involved in grievance procedures can sometimes be complex and our employment solicitors are able to advise you on how to submit a grievance as well as provide advice on your rights to appeal if a grievance is not upheld.

Disciplinary matters are when an employer takes action in relation to allegations including:

  • Absence
  • Timekeeping
  • Health and safety
  • Performance
  • Discrimination
  • Misconduct

It is essential for both employers and employees that there is a clear and fair framework in place to deal with discipline and grievance problems when they occur.  The ACAS Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance provides best practice for how these issues should be dealt with.  Failure by an employer or employee to follow the advice of the ACAS code can affect awards of compensation at employment tribunals.

If you are being faced with disciplinary proceedings or wish to raise a grievance our employment solicitors can advise you of your options clearly and help you plan the best pathway to manage your particular situation.
