Course Aims

This Disciplinary and Grievance Training Course will provide those that attend with the skills and approaches needed to manage disciplinary and grievance issues effectively.

It seems today that the rules surrounding disciplinary and grievance in the workplace have many grey areas. It’s reported that businesses apply the rules in different ways or even inconsistencies in the procedure in one business is commonplace.

People are becoming much more aware of what their rights are meaning if an employer does have to discipline a member of staff they have to get it absolutely right. Get it wrong and you have to leave yourself open to employment tribunals and a whole host of other things.

Businesses have to stick to quite strict guidelines when it comes to dealing with disciplinary. Larger organisations tend to have Human Resources or Personnel departments who will apply and provide guidance on these policies. No matter how big or small the business, the rules have to be followed.

Gone are the days when someone can be ‘sacked on the spot’. Businesses to need to prove that they have given an employee every opportunity to improve their work, unless of course it’s an act of gross misconduct.
