Workplace disputes can often be dealt with internally but it requires good organisation and communication on behalf of your employer. If you are facing a disciplinary meeting at work, or you’ve been disciplined but you feel the outcome is unfair, there are things you can do to protect yourself.
What you should expect from your employer:
Every employer should have a written disciplinary procedure that allows you to understand the process, respond to any allegations and share your side of the story. There should also be an opportunity for you to appeal if you disagree with the findings.
How we can help:
Disciplinary or grievance procedures can be stressful and upsetting, both during the process itself and when dealing with aftermath, especially if you feel you have been treated unfairly. As employment law and HR specialists we can help you:
- Prepare for any upcoming meetings to ensure you are treated fairly and are given the chance to share your side of the story
- Decide what to do next if you’re not happy with the outcome of the meeting including advising on whether to bring a Tribunal claim if we feel that is the best option for you.
