Training: Disciplinary and Grievance in Practice

A practical guide to running disciplinary and grievance procedures.

Have you felt that frustration of someone not doing what you ask, ignoring rules, turning up late? Constantly repeating yourself and nothing changes?

The disciplinary process may sound formal, scary and hard work but it is your route to sanctions, consequences that will change behaviour. Should you need to dismiss someone - sometimes dismissal is in the best interests of everyone - this is your route to a fair dismissal, protecting you from an employment tribunal claim.

Knowing what you can do and how to do it gives you the power to ensure people are doing what you need them to be doing. When you have this knowledge and the right procedures in place, people will be more likely to meet your expectations. You won’t be doing disciplinary and grievance meetings on repeat. They don’t want to go through this as much as you don’t, when people know the line and what will happen when they cross it, more often than not they’ll choose to walk the line.

What you’ll learn:

  • What the ACAS code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures is and why it’s so important to a fair process
  • When the disciplinary and grievance procedures should be used
  • The requirements of an investigation
  • How to conduct a disciplinary and grievance hearing
  • Your role as a chairperson in those meetings
  • How to decide upon a disciplinary and grievance outcome

Equip your managers with the skills to manage disciplinary and grievance procedures.
