Disciplinary and Grievance Issues Explained
A disciplinary meeting is held between employee and employer to discuss issues such as:
- Health and safety
Before conducting a disciplinary hearing, your business must first have a process in place that covers preparing for the hearing and analysing the strengths and weaknesses of your businesses case.
Our solicitors are also on hand to offer advice and guidance in relation to appeals, employment tribunal claims and negotiating an exit or Settlement Agreement with an employee.
Providing expert and effective advice for employers around disciplinary and grievance procedures forms a core component of the work that is undertaken by our specialist employment law team, so you can be confident that you have the best possible team working with you.
If an employee raises a grievance with you and your business, it is vital that the complaint is dealt with in a fair and impartial manner.
Many grievances can be settled by an internal grievance hearing. However, the issues involved can sometimes be complex and/or difficult to deal with and that’s where we can help. It’s essential that grievances are dealt with quickly and effectively in order to prevent them from escalating and ultimately turning into costly and time consuming employment tribunal claims.
At Lupton Fawcett, our team of experienced employment solicitors are on hand to give you the guidance, support and assistance that you need to handle grievances properly and minimise the disruption that can be caused to your business.
How We Can Help
The experienced employment law solicitors at Lupton Fawcett are able to offer advice and assistance to businesses who are faced with having to deal with a disciplinary hearing or grievance process. We appreciate and understand that businesses often need expert advice and support when dealing with disciplinary and/or grievance issues.
We work closely with businesses in order to assist them in identifying the key issues amongst their staff at an early stage, so that strategies can be formulated for dealing with them effectively.
Members of the team are able to advise on the level and types of investigations that need to be carried out, together with the evidential burdens that are likely to be encountered in terms of justifying a particular disciplinary, grievance or performance-related decision or outcome.
We will also work with you in order to make sure that you follow and adhere to the correct procedural steps and procedures. Additionally, we often draft documents and letters in order to ensure that your decisions are capable of standing up to close scrutiny.
