Disciplinary Capability and Grievance Issues.

Disputes with your employer can be both time-consuming and emotionally draining if not handled appropriately and sensitively by them. If you feel that you’re being unfairly treated at work, we can provide you with an independent view on the merits of your concerns.

By discussing the details of your concerns with you, we can help identify relevant issues and assist you in trying to achieve the outcome you’re looking for.  We’ll help you put together the best arguments to defend any allegations made against you and (if possible) how to retain a good working relationship with your employer.

Whether it’s allegations of poor performance, misconduct, absence or breakdowns in working relationships, we can provide that additional support to guide you through disciplinary or capability procedures.

We will advise you on the various preparatory steps you might wish to take before attending any hearings, as well as drafting the appropriate correspondence to your employer to ensure that you have all your bases covered.

If you have good reason for making allegations of your own, we will advise on your various options and whether it’s in your best interests to raise a formal grievance.

We’ll dispel common misconceptions which you may have about what an employer can or can’t do.  We’ll look at what reasonable steps your employer should be taking, particularly if you believe that you are suffering from unlawful discrimination or harassment.

If you are unable to resolve matters with your employer, we will discuss the options which still remain open to you.  In serious cases, this may include taking preparatory steps to bring an employment tribunal claim and contacting Acas about early conciliation.
