Course Overview

Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures are an important step towards achieving acceptable standards of performance and behaviour across your organisation. It is important to communicate to employees standards expected and the steps that will be taken if these expectations are not met. The course shows the different stages within a disciplinary procedure, information about what constitutes gross misconduct and grounds for dismissal, and any rights of your workforce, both for representation and to raise an appeal if action was taken.

An effective Grievance Procedure sets out how employees can raise any concerns, problems or complaints in the workplace – including their work or workload, working conditions or relationships with colleagues – and how those concerns will be dealt with. Crucially, employees must know that their concerns will be dealt with fairly and consistently.
