Misconduct Issues

As an employer, it is sometimes impossible to keep everyone happy.  Equally, when employees step out of line, it is important that an employer has properly drafted and robust disciplinary procedures so as to ensure that discipline (or a lack of) does not become an issue in the workplace.

We are able to advise on the process to be followed when a disciplinary issue arises, or when an employee raises a formal grievance.  This will often be covered by a properly drafted staff handbook and/or contract of employment (see above).  All the same, it is important to follow the process as closely as possible in order to avoid a situation escalating and a claim being brought against you.  This applies no matter how serious or otherwise the grievance or the disciplinary action to be taken.
