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.
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.
