Grievance And Disciplinary

1 Day Workshop

Tailored For Your Needs And Delivered At Your Site

Why Run This Workshop?

This one day workshop will address the areas of disciplinary and grievance, from various distinct angles. The legal framework will be outlined; the HR view will be covered, promoting a real world pragmatic approach and we will tackle your own organisation’s typical scenarios.


If you work in a unionised environment we will also explain what the union rep is aiming to achieve and how they are trained to achieve the best results for their member. If required, we can utilise former union officials for this section.


What Will Be Covered?

  • Employment law related to disciplinary and grievance
  • ACAS guidelines
  • Legal case history
  • How to avoid tribunal claims
  • Best practice guidance
  • Handling awkward situations e.g. employee off with stress, obstructive union rep, intimidation of witnesses, uncovering other issues, union action as a result, unable to prove but suspect allegations true.

  • Handling union officials at all levels
