Disciplinary hearings and grievance procedures
Facing a disciplinary hearing?
Concerned that a grievance procedure was not followed?
If your employer is questioning your conduct or performance at work and they have decided to take formal action, you may need independent advice on whether they are acting reasonably and following a fair disciplinary procedure. Your employers should follow the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance procedures.
If it is not already contained in your contract or staff handbook, your employer should be able to provide you with a copy of the company’s disciplinary procedure in writing.
At Myers & Co, our specialist employment law solicitors can check whether your employer has carried out a reasonable investigation. This includes giving you the correct written notices, conducting a fair hearing and appeal. At each stage you have the right to be represented by a colleague or trade union official.
This can be a difficult and stressful time, especially if your job is under threat. If you feel that the problems are not being dealt with in the correct manner, we can advise you on your options, which could involve making a complaint to an employment tribunal.
Speak to one of our employment lawyers to find out where you stand legally and how to make sure that you are heard effectively.
