Policy and Procedure

Workplace disputes, grievances and disciplinaries can be a costly and time consuming affair for businesses; especially if the issue was escalated to an employment tribunal.

The breakdown of any relationship can prove to be a bitter and costly affair.

When the split is between an employer and aggrieved employee it can be extremely acrimonious.

An absence management policy should be fit for purpose

It is inevitable that employees are going to be off work sick from time to time and managing such an absence badly can really add insult to injury.

Employers have been allowed to do criminal record checks on job applicants but the right to continue doing so is now under question.

It’s that time of year when temperatures hopefully start to rise, but it does also mean that things can get a little bit heated in work.

It appears workers are not afraid to help themselves when it comes to stealing from their employer.

Can an employer discipline or dismiss an employee for capability reasons, while they are off sick?

It's a common myth that workers can't be sacked while they are off sick!!

The Industrial Tribunal in Northern Ireland recently considered whether an employer acted fairly in dismissing an employee who posted vulgar sexual comments about a female colleague on their Facebook page. The employer was named.

The use of e-cigarettes in the workplace remains a burning issue for employers.

The dilemma facing companies is whether to ban the battery-operated cigarette substitute.

While instances of using a lie detector to dismiss an employee are extremely rare getting to truth of any disciplinary matter remains a testing issue.

What an amazing team. I recently found myself on suspension after a call of mine was monitored by the company I work for. I felt at the time that it was unfair and did acknowledge the mistake straight away.

From a very horrible 2 years of grievances with my work manager and work place of 10 years. I unfortunately was left at a dismissal hearing with no representation or Union member to help me show and explain my side of the issues involved.
