This one day course sets out to look at how to identify where disciplinary procedures and rules help with employee relations and promote fairness and consistency in the treatment of individuals. They will provide clear guidance on the procedures that should be followed, whilst ensuring participants understand best practice and how to resolve issues early and effectively to minimise the impact poor discipline can have on a business.
Whereas Discipline seeks to deal with issues relating to employees conduct, Grievance is the mechanism whereby an employee complains abut the aspect of their work.
This course will identify the procedures and steps required to ensure each Grievance is dealt with fairly and consistently.
