Disciplinary Procedures Claims Leeds

Disciplinary Procedures can be a very complex area. Here at Claims Liverpool we believe that knowledge is power, contact us NOW to speak to our employment law team who will be more than happy to provide you with FREE expert advice.

If your employer has concerns or a complaint about your work, they may decide to take disciplinary action against you. There are a number of reasons why your employer may decide to take this action. These includer:

  • Behaviour at work
  • Absence from work
  • Standard of work.

Your employer should try to sort out their concerns by talking to you informally, if at all possible. However, employers may not resolve their concerns in this way and may decide to start disciplinary procedure. This could lead to disciplinary action and, in some cases, even dismissal. If your employer decides to a take disciplinary action or dismiss you, they should follow the procedures which are laid out in the ACAS Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures. They don’t have to follow these procedures but, if you decide to take your employer to an employment tribunal and you win your case, your employer could be ordered to pay you more compensation for not following the procedures.

The first time you may be aware of a problem with your employer is when they ask to talk to you about a concern they have. It is often best to keep this initial conversation informal as this may be the result of a misunderstanding, and you may be able to provide evidence in your support. You should, however, keep a note of the conversation and what was agreed. It may not always be possible for your employer to sort out their concerns informally and they may start formal disciplinary procedures. In some cases, this may lead to dismissal.

If your employer decides to start disciplinary or dismissal action against you, they should follow the ACAS Code of Practice. The Code of Practice sets out standards of fairness and reasonable behaviour that employers and employees are expected to follow in most situations when dealing with a dispute. Your employer doesn’t have to follow the Code of Practice but, if you decide to take your employer to an employment tribunal and you win your case, they could be ordered to pay you more compensation for not following the Code. If your employer is taking disciplinary action against you, it’s always a good idea to keep a note of exactly what happens and when.

If your employer follows the Code of Practice, their disciplinary and dismissal procedures will include the following steps:

  1. Sending a letter – If your employer is considering disciplinary action or dismissal, their first step should be to write to you setting out the complaint about your work. Your employer’s letter should include full details of the issue they wish to discuss. There should be enough detail for you to be able to prepare a response or an explanation before the meeting. The letter should also say you have a right to have someone at any meeting with you.
  2. Arranging a meeting – Once your employer has contacted you in writing, they should also arrange a meeting at a reasonable time and place to discuss the problem. Your employer should not take any disciplinary action before this meeting. You have a legal right to ask someone to accompany you to the meeting – either a colleague from work or a trade union representative. Your employer should give you the opportunity to set out your case at the meeting. After the meeting, your employer should tell you what they have decided and should do this in writing.
  3. Appealing – If you don’t agree with your employer’s decision, your employer should give you the opportunity to appeal against it. You don’t have to appeal, but if you later decide to go to an employment tribunal and you win your case, the tribunal may reduce any compensation awarded to you as a result of your failure to appeal. If you want to appeal, you should do this within a reasonable period of time and you should put your appeal in writing. Your letter should:
    • Say that you are appealing against your employer’s decision
    • Explain why you don’t agree with the decision

Your employer should arrange a further meeting to discuss your appeal. You have a legal right to ask either a colleague from work or a trade union representative to accompany you to the meeting. You should make sure you, or the person with you, takes notes at the appeal meeting. After the appeal meeting, your employer should write to you with their final decision. If you are still not happy with your employer’s decision, you may want to think about other ways of resolving the issue with your employer.

Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to:

  • Go to mediation
  • Try early conciliation
  • Make a claim to an employment tribunal

No Win No Fee

No Win No Fee arrangements (or Conditional Fee Arrangements; CFAs) ensure that if you do not win your accident claim, you do not have to pay your solicitor a fee. Insurance will cover you against the other side’s costs and expenses. If you win your no win no fee claim, you should receive your compensation free of any deductions, as your solicitor’s costs should be paid by the other side.
