Statutory procedures cause more grief than relief for HR profession

More than two-thirds (69%) of HR people think the statutory grievance procedures introduced last year fail to support strategic or business goals.

A survey of 601 HR professionals by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) shows widespread unhappiness about the effect of the new procedures which were designed to stop claims reaching employment tribunals.

The Employment and the Law report, also shows that 54% thought the legislation was unnecessary; while 74% felt the procedures were badly drafted and difficult to apply.

The report will be released at the end of June at the CIPD’s Employment Law Conference.
