Event Information

Employment Breakfast Briefing - 1 October 2019Dealing with employee grievances

Tuesday 1st October, 2019 |
Radisson Blu

Free to attend

Employers will be aware that they must take into account the Acas Code of Practice when dealing with grievances from employees, but handling this process is not always as straight-forward as that. This session will look at the complications which can arise in grievance procedures and will provide a case law update.

The session will include:

  • A reminder of whistleblowing protections and when they might apply to someone who has raised a grievance;
  • Potential discrimination issues when handling grievances, including the risk of victimisation claims after an employee has raised a complaint related to a protected characteristic;
  • Tips on handling the cross-over between disciplinary and grievance procedures; and
  • The risks of a constructive dismissal claim.
