The law requires employers to act reasonably in their discipline of employees and in dealing with grievances. Poorly handled processes can lead to unnecessary and costly employment tribunals.

This half day event will provide you with an essential overview of the skills and knowledge needed to manage and conduct employee discipline and grievance procedures.
