Disciplinary and
Grievance Issues

Disciplinary and Grievance Issues

With specialist support, disciplinary and grievance issues are far easier to resolve.

Experience tells us that the earlier potential issues are identified, the better chance you have of resolving them effectively – thereby avoiding loss of talent or costly dispute processes.

It’s not always easy to recognise a grievance. It might be a concern raised by an employee about their own employment, or a grievance about a colleague or manager’s conduct. It may begin informally away from the workplace, even a simple text message. But whatever form it takes, failing to recognise a grievance, or to take the appropriate action, can have significant consequences.

Disciplinary matters will arise from time to time within any organisation. It may be that you are concerned about something an employee has said or done or a grievance might itself lead to disciplinary action.

Take action sooner rather than later

No matter the stage, severity or formality of the disciplinary or grievance issue, our expert employment law team can help you handle it efficiently and correctly, and ensure that a tribunal would uphold your actions as fair and reasonable.

We provide timely guidance on the correct legal processes and paperwork for handling disciplinary and grievance issues most effectively. If necessary, our HR Consultancy team can carry out investigations, or chair hearings or appeals. We can also provide training for your management team, giving them greater skills and confidence in handling disciplinary and grievance matters.
