Course Overview

Disciplinary related matters can cause headaches for even the most experienced manager or business owner; for those with little or no practical experience, the prospect of conducting a disciplinary meeting or hearing can be nerve wracking and the consequences of failing to adhere to the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures, are severe.

For example, if during a disciplinary hearing a fair process is not followed, the employer could be open to the risk of a claim for unfair dismissal and an increase of up to 25% on any compensation awarded, even if there was a wealth of evidence against the employee.
