Our specialist employment law solicitors are experienced at assisting employees throughout their workplace disputes including preparing the defence to allegations, preparing for the meeting, discussing tactics and negotiating a resolution directly with the employer.
Not all disciplinary processes are the same. The employer should put their disciplinary policy and procedure in writing. The aims of this disciplinary procedure is to set out the standards of conduct expected of all staff and to provide a framework within which managers can work with employees to maintain satisfactory standards of behaviour and to encourage improvement or performance.
You can find additional guidance on how disciplinary issues should be handled by reading the ACAS Code of Practice – Discipline and Grievance Procedures which is designed to give guidance to both the employee and employer on how to fairly and reasonably navigate disciplinary issues.
