Most employers at some stage will need to consider taking some form of disciplinary action against a member of staff. This may range from an informal warning to demotion or dismissal.
Regardless of the severity of the case, carrying out a fair disciplinary process is crucial in order to ensure that your employment relations are not damaged and your organisation is not exposed to the risk of an employment tribunal claim.
We advise employers of all sizes on a regular basis on how to carry out effective disciplinary procedures from investigation through to potential appeals ensuring at each stage that you correctly comply with the ACAS statutory code of practice.
Our services include providing CIPD accredited HR consultants to attend any investigatory or disciplinary meetings to support you carry out these potentially difficult procedures.
