There will be times when an employee’s conduct or performance falls short of what is expected of them in their contract of employment, or they believe that they have been treated unfairly at work. On those occasions, you will need to initiate your company’s disciplinary or grievance policies and procedures. This can be an emotive, challenging and time consuming process for everyone, but with the help of a specialist employment solicitor from Poole Alcock you can avoid any risks to your business.
In addition to helping you put the right policies and procedures in place, our employment lawyers can advise you about the protocols your business is expected to follow as part of the disciplinary or grievance process, such as having your own procedures in place and following the ACAS code of practice. We can also advise you about the penalties for getting it wrong.
If you have recognised problems in the workplace at an early stage, then we can also use the performance capability procedure to discipline or dismiss employees who are performing poorly.
Our skilled team of employment lawyers have worked with businesses across Cheshire, helping them to recognise potentially damaging issues in the workplace and handle them appropriately. With a pragmatic and commercial approach, our aim is to help your business take a systematic approach to a problematic issue.
