Every employee is entitled to a statement of terms and conditions of employment, from day one.
They must be accompanied by policies and procedures that sets out the expectations of all employees, and what they can expect from their employer. Don’t reinvent the wheel, we can provide documents tailored to the needs of your organisation.
An investigation is a process of gathering evidence about a serious concern that has been identified in the workplace. Often this is a matter that breaches the employment contract. A thorough investigation is necessary, before any action can be taken. This is the first stage of the required ‘3 step’ process as detailed by the ACAS code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures.
Disciplinary & Grievance issues
Whether dealing with complaints from employees (grievance) or issues with behaviour or work performance (disciplinary), employers must follow a fair process that complies with the ACAS code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures. We can help employers to make sense of the requirements, and operate a clear process.
Mediation is a process used to find a solution when the employer and employee disagree.
