Disciplinary and Grievance Producedure - Why?


Disciplinary and grievance procedures should, as a minimum, reflect the ACAS code of practice, whilst the Code is not, in itself, legally enforceable, employment tribunals will take its provisions into account when considering relevant cases. In some cases when the code is not followed it can result in an uplift of an award for unfair dismissal by 25%. Following a fair procedure will help keep an employer safer, but also a clear disciplinary procedure will hopefully encourage employees not to misbehave, but if they do it can help correct their behaviour. While a fair grievance procedure will help to resolve any genuine employee concerns, enabling them to work to their full abilities.
