To make sure that any disciplinary and grievance procedure is fair, it is helpful to have different people dealing with the investigation, taking the decision and hearing the appeal. Many smaller businesses just don’t have sufficient senior staff. Occasionally, the investigation might be quite complex and the business may not want to lose senior management while they deal with a difficult investigation. We can help.
If you want to take the decision but do not have sufficient resources to carry out a separate investigation, we can do that for you, giving you all the information you need to make the right decision. Alternatively, if you want an independent person to take the decision, we can help.
When the grievance or the disciplinary decision is taken by the most senior person in the organisation, you may need to outsource the appeal. We can assist you with this.
