Our experienced team have worked with businesses both regionally and nationally to help them to deal with workplace issues appropriately.

All employers need to know how to discipline their employees fairly. Mishandling disciplinary issues gives rise to a huge number of employment tribunal claims every year including for breach of contract, unfair dismissal and discrimination.

Mincoffs’ specialist employment team is equipped to advise employers on best practice for disciplinary issues in order to achieve the best outcome.

An employer should follow a proper disciplinary process if it believes that an employee may be guilty of misconduct. Employers should also follow the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures as tribunals take this into account when assessing the fairness of a dismissal.

It is vital that businesses have disciplinary and grievance procedures in place to promote fairness and consistency when dealing with problems with employees. Mincoffs’ employment solicitors can offer a full range of services to businesses to ensure you are taking steps that are legally compliant.
