Acas disciplinary code awaits approval

The
revised draft Acas Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance procedures
has been put before Parliament and, subject to parliamentary approval, is due
to come into effect on 1 October 2004.

The code
has been revised to take account of the new statutory discipline and grievance
procedures which come into operation on 1 October 2004. As well as giving
practical guidance on the statutory procedures the code also advises on:


What counts as reasonable behaviour when dealing with disciplinary and grievance
issues


Producing and using disciplinary and grievance procedures for your own
workplace


A worker’s right to bring a companion to grievance and disciplinary hearings.
