When issues arise at work, be they a grievance or a disciplinary, the most important part for an employer is a thorough investigation. These form the bedrock of the matter, showing what is likely to have happened and this helps an employer determine what action is appropriate, or reasonable to take in the circumstances.
The procedure for disciplinaries and grievances should be outlined in your policies and procedures, setting out the process you should follow in either situation. In order to mitigate the risk of a claim, employers should be thorough, fair and even-handed in their approach to getting to the heart of the issue.
Our specialist Employment Team can guide you through the process of investigating a disciplinary and/or grievance matter, minimising the risk to your business, whilst protecting the employee’s rights in the workplace, where relevant.
