Grievance & Disciplinary Matters
From time to time you will be confronted with issues in your business which lead to grievance & disciplinary action. To avoid any external conflict through the tribunals or courts it is always advisable to seek an early resolution of the matter before things deteriorate and cost you further time and expense.
Managing performance in the workplace can be one of the most difficult issues for you to deal with as an employer. Two key issues when considering an employee’s ability to carry out their role are performance and sickness absence.
There may be also issues with an employee’s performance which can be difficult to manage, and may potentially lead to dismissal. A business must follow employment law when managing employees and dismissing employees.
Our employment law specialists can also support your business to defend themselves at an employment tribunal due to unfair dismissal or discrimination at an employment tribunal.
