The Disciplinary and Grievance process is embodied in “The Acas Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures”.

This is the minimum an employer should follow for handling these issues in the workplace. Employers who do not follow this process are at a higher risk of losing their case in a dispute.

A common misstep is for Employers rushing to the goal of firing the employee without due process and their right to reply. One of the key steps that is often missed when the person’s competency is under question is a fair Performance Review.
