This full-day event provides you with the skills, knowledge and techniques for managing or conducting employee discipline and grievance procedures.

Business need

The law requires employers to act reasonably in their discipline of employees and in dealing with grievances. Poorly handled processes can lead to unnecessary and costly Employment Tribunals.

Having effective and compliant procedures in place can encourage people to observe the rules and maintain workplace standards. If staff problems are settled early they become less time-consuming, are less likely to damage working relationships, therefore improving staff motivation and productivity.

With case studies and practical exercises, this event will provide delegates with techniques in the handling of disciplinary and grievance meetings, and an in-depth understanding of the legal background which underpins the tribunal process, including the industry recognised Acas Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
