Do you struggle to handle difficult Disciplinary issues because you are unsure of the proccess and how to handle them correctly? Do you bury your head in the sand because you are fearful of the law and its consequences? Or do you believe “We don't need Disciplinary rules and procedures because our company is too small and anyway we have a happy workforce.”?
Even the most successful small or medium sized business, from time to time, may be faced with having to take disciplinary action against an employee. It is essential - and required by law - that you have written disciplinary rules and procedures in place. Then, if problems do arise, everybody knows what is required of them and whatever takes place is consistent and fair.
At Plain Talking HR we offer a FREE first consultation. This can be used to discuss how to resolve a difficult issue that you're currently experiencing. Or the time can be used to discuss putting into place relevant policy and procedures. Then when problems occur in future, you can nip them in the bud.
With our support, you will be confident in handling difficult situations fairly and consistently.
Our support includes:
• Developing Disciplinary Policy and Procedures
• Handling Investigations
• Handling Informal and Formal Disciplinary Actions
• Assistance at Disciplinary Hearings
• Dealing with Grievances Raised during Disciplinary Procedures
• Determining fair Disciplinary Penalties
• Handling Appeals
At Plain Talking HR we will avoid formal disciplinary procedures wherever possible by addressing problems as soon as they arise. Disciplinary action should only be taken when standards of conduct give rise to problems which cannot be resolved by advice and/or encouragement, training and/or increased support.
THE PROCEDURES THAT PLAIN TALKING HR DEVELOP FOR YOU WILL PROVIDE CONSISTENCY IN THE TREATMENT OF YOUR EMPLOYEES AND WILL FOLLOW THE GOOD PRACTICE AS DESCRIBED IN THE ACAS GUIDELINES
