Managing discipline and grievance (England & Wales) – digital event 22 June 2021

During these unprecedented times, more people are working remotely. How your business deals with discipline and grievance may need to be adapted but it must still follow employment legislation.

This digital event will provide you with an overview of the Acas Code of Practice and the key skills you need to confidently manage discipline and grievance procedures in your workplace and remotely.

Business need
Poorly handled processes can lead to costly employment tribunals.

Workplace problems that are tackled early take up less time and are more unlikely to damage working relationships, resulting in improved staff motivation and increased productivity.

Having effective and compliant procedures in place can encourage employees to observe the rules and workplace standards whilst maintaining good working relationships.

The Acas Code of practice on discipline and grievance details the basic requirements of fairness and reasonable behaviour when handling discipline and grievance procedures.

Delivered to you via Zoom, you will have the opportunity to interact with our knowledgeable trainers and discuss some of the challenges you may be facing.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable for delegates from all sectors of industry including: managers, supervisors, team leaders, HR professionals, business owners, Trade Union representatives, employee representatives and individuals who wish to enhance their CPD.
