Disciplinary and Grievance Course – Details

Course Aim

This Disciplinary and Grievance Training Course will provide you with the skills and approaches needed to manage disciplinary and grievance issues effectively.

It seems today that the rules surrounding disciplinary and grievance in the workplace have many grey areas. It’s reported that businesses apply the rules in different ways or even inconsistencies in the procedure in one business is commonplace.

People are becoming much more aware of what their rights are meaning if an employer does have to discipline a member of staff they have to get it absolutely right. Get it wrong and you have to leave yourself open to employment tribunals and a whole host of other things.

Businesses have to stick to quite strict guidelines when it comes to dealing with disciplinary. Larger organisations tend to have Human Resources or Personnel departments who will apply and provide guidance on these policies. No matter how big or small the business, the rules have to be followed.

Gone are the days when someone can be ‘sacked on the spot’. Businesses need to prove that they have given an employee every opportunity to improve their work unless of course, it’s an act of gross misconduct.

No. It is the leader or manager’s responsibility to manage most of the process in the organisation, so it is the manager who needs a greater understanding of the policy and process. HR should be used as a backup or when things are more into the latter part of the process.

A little. The course is more focused on the practical tools of managing the process rather than the law. This is where your HR team can support you.

If you book a scheduled open course, you are more than welcome to have your policies and process at hand and look at how the skills and approaches fit into this. If we are running an in-house course for you, we will ask for these as part of our initial conversations so we can bring your policy and processes into the workshop.

Yes. We have lots of articles about disciplinary and grievance in the managing performance section of our blog.
