Disciplinary and Dismissal Assistance in St Helens
Hattons in St Helens can assist with any part of the disciplinary and grievance process, ensuring that as an employer you are following a fair process which is legally compliant.
For example, employers should make sure that they are following the ACAS Code, which sets out the proper procedure for disciplinary and grievance matters. It is not legally binding, but an Employment Tribunal will take this into account, and it will be influential in their judgment. We can provide clear, logical advice on how to properly conduct a disciplinary and instruct on how to deal with issues relating to employee absence or performance.
Dismissing an employee will sometimes be necessary in order to meet the needs and best interests of your business. However, doing this incorrectly can leave you open to liability, possibly with claims such as unfair dismissal and discrimination. In order to avoid stressful and expensive legal action, Hattons can help you with the termination of employment, whether this be due to redundancy, employee misconduct, or other legitimate business reasons. We will do so in a way that best reflects your commercial interests.
