Discipline and grievances

A disciplinary procedure and grievance procedure permit employers to deal fairly and consistently with employee misconduct and complaints from employees about the workplace.

Employment tribunals will take the code into account when considering relevant cases, with the possibility of a 25% adjustment in any compensation awarded.
