Our Employment lawyers are able to advise on how to deal with performance issues fairly and effectively, including the use of internal investigations, and on disciplinary and grievance procedures.
When an employee raises a grievance or a disciplinary is issued it can be a very stressful and unpredictable period for all parties involved. An employer must thoroughly investigate any claims made and any individual selected to carry out such an investigation must be keenly aware of the sensitivity of the situation and the possible risks of their actions. Failure to strike this balance means that an employer is at risk of being taken to tribunal by an employee.
Following effective procedures when managing employees’ performance will help avoid potential claims in the employment tribunal.
We can assist employees who have had disciplinary action taken against them or where they have raised a grievance that has not been resolved.
