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.
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.
