Disciplinary, Performance and Grievance

Whilst an employer must have disciplinary and grievance procedures in place, there is no legally binding procedure to be followed for these matters. However, the ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) Code of Practice provides a persuasive framework and an unreasonable failure to follow this raises the risk of increased compensation being awarded to an employee by an Employment Tribunal.
Our team have the expertise and attention to detail to guide you step-by-step through the relevant processes and reduce therefore your potential exposure to Tribunal claims and awards.   If an employee brings a claim against you despite the procedure having been followed, we can handle the repercussions on your behalf. Where required, we offer commercial advice to help you achieve your objectives, whatever they may be.

When acting for employees, we advise on your rights and whether your employer is complying with these, and what you may be entitled to if it is not doing so.
