Managing Disciplinary Issues in the Workplace (Edinburgh) - FULLY BOOKED

Often employers are required to grapple with potential misconduct within the workplace. Situations can range from relatively minor acts of misconduct to potential gross misconduct. Often pressure of business results in these issues either being overlooked or some form of informal procedure being undertaken. Approaching matters in this way is a risk and could lead to challenges at a later date.

This practical session is aimed at all sizes of employer and goes back to basics. What are the key requirements of which employers should be aware when dealing with misconduct at work? The session will consider:

  • What is misconduct?
  • Compare an informal to a formal approach   
  • How should employers investigate potential issues that arise and what are the pitfalls? 
  • How should disciplinary hearings be managed in practice?   
  • What about appeals?    

By failing to manage disciplinary issues properly, employers create unnecessary risk, such as potential costly Employment Tribunal proceedings, damaged employee morale or challenging employment relations. This session will ensure delegates are equipped with the tools necessary to handle disciplinary issues in the workplace and that such matters are dealt with robustly and  fairly. Spaces are limited, so early booking is advisable.
