Disciplinary, Dismissal & Grievance Procedures

Guidance for employers


The employer must invite the employee to a meeting to discuss the grievance. You should not delay the meeting unreasonably but give yourself time to look into the background to the grievance and check what action has been taken in similar cases.

The meeting should be at a reasonable time and location and the employee has a duty to attend. The employee has a right to be accompanied by a colleague or employee representative. If the employee or the companion is disabled you should take all reasonable steps to ensure that they have no problems participating fully in the meeting. (see ‘ Getting the most out of meetings‘).

After the meeting you must inform the employee of your decision and offer an appeal meeting if the decision goes against him or her.
