Unfortunately, at some point disciplinary matters and grievances are likely to arise in the workplace.

Disciplinary matters arise where, amongst other things, an employer takes action in relation to allegations of misconduct or poor performance. Grievances, on the other hand, arise where an employee has a complaint, concern or problem about any aspect their work.

We can help with any stage of the disciplinary and grievance process. We are able to help guide you through the process to ensure that your employer adopts a fair procedure and are able to help you prepare for any meetings by analysing evidence and witness statements. We can also help you with any subsequent appeal. We have successfully helped clients remain in employment or secure re-employment, and have also helped clients secure financial settlements to leave their employment under settlement agreements .

We can advise on representation at any disciplinary or grievance meeting, and can arrange to have a qualified trade union official at the meeting to represent you and make sure you are supported – even if you aren’t a member of a trade union.

To contact one of our employment law solicitors regarding a disciplinary or grievance issue, or any employment law issue, please call 0330 017 6308* or email info@bannerjones.co.uk.
