This online training programme provides employees with an understanding of discipline and grievance procedures. It walks them through why they are necessary and how they work. It also emphasizes the importance of seeking informal resolutions wherever possible.

Discipline and grievance policies and procedures help resolve occupational disputes when informal mechanisms are not working, or are inappropriate due to the nature of the issue. It is essential that employers make all employees aware of these procedures. This will help to avoid expensive and lengthy tribunal cases.

Why Disciplinary & Grievance Training is Vital

To run an organisation properly, it is important to have clear, established discipline and grievance procedures and policies. This ensures that if issues or disputes arise, a fair and unbiased resolution can be found wherever possible.

Moreover, making employees aware of these procedures helps to ensure employees:

  • Recognise the seriousness of these procedures
  • Know what to expect
  • Any such procedures will be handled in a respectful and confidential way
  • Understand that these procedures exist as a last resort
  • The value of trying to resolve issues informally

If employers fail to follow discipline and grievance procedures properly, it increases the likelihood of cases going to a tribunal. In such instances, if someone wins a case against the employer, they could be awarded up to 25% more.
