Dealing with a disciplinary or grievance issue is never easy for employers. Businesses and employees have to follow the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance procedures (the ACAS Code) in nearly every grievance and disciplinary situation, whether you are a small family business or a multinational corporation.
We have many years' experience of producing carefully drafted disciplinary and grievance policies and procedures, all delivered in line with our client's needs and resources and following the latest best practice.

As an employer you may be considering investigating a misconduct issue, or have recently received a grievance or complaint from an employee. The ACAS Code applies a minimum practice standard when considering disciplinary or grievance issues, and it is important that the correct procedure is followed. It is best practice to have your own policy in place, however even if you don't then you should ensure that the ACAS Code of Conduct is followed.
We guide you through the whole process. Dealing promptly and efficiently with disciplinary and grievance issues will greatly reduce the risk of further legal action being brought against your business.
If you are faced with an issue that requires investigating, you must ensure everyone involved in the process complies with the minimum ACAS Code. Failure to do so could lead to an Employment Tribunal increasing compensation by up to 25%. In some cases this could result in a substantial increase, particularly if a claim involves an element of discrimination or harassment.
