Discipline and Grievance - Essential Acas training for Managers

The Acas Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance Every business needs to have managers who are able to handle disciplinary issues in the workplace effectively.

Ensuring your people know what is expected of them and the rules within which they operate is key to getting the best results from your employees.

Successful businesses know that disciplinary procedures are an aid to effective management, enabling them to resolve issues quickly and cheaply rather than being used simply as a mechanism for imposing sanctions.

Achieving this focus and helping others in the workplace understand this perspective is very important.

It requires managers to have a good working knowledge of discipline and grievance procedures which is essential if potentially disruptive issues are to be resolved in the workplace rather than spilling over into a potentially costly employment tribunal.

Acas wrote the pdf icon Acas Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance [341kb] and our training is based on our in-depth knowledge of how the code can be most effectively used in the workplace.

Acas training represents the perfect opportunity for you or your managers to develop skills and confidence in handling disciplinary and grievance issues and helps ensure that your business has effective procedures in place.
