Disciplinary and grievance

Most performance problems can be resolved informally and swiftly in the workplace but there are occasions where a formal disciplinary approach is necessary and when handled without the benefit of HR support this can result in employment tribunals. No one wants it to come to this and we recommend following the Acas Code of Practice as closely as you can. However, should a formal workplace disciplinary be necessary and you want to minimise the risk of legal proceedings, we want to make sure that you’re prepared. Starfish People offers the best professional disciplinary and grievance advice and, if required, will personally prepare investigations and attend disciplinary and grievance cases.

“Wow… Helen is amazing. Was recommended by a friend. A true professional and provided me with some really good advice at a really diffcult time. There is no doubt her advice helped me to agree a settlement with my employer which was the result I wanted. If I have any HR issues I will most certainly use or recommend Helen again. Thank you so very much"
