Progressing disciplinary and grievance procedures during the Coronavirus Pandemic – guidance note
Acas have just updated their advice to employers regarding variations to processes that we are all very familiar with. So, in exploring what this means for us, and how we can do things differently to achieve a robust outcome, we need to ensure that the principles of natural justice and fairness remain intact. We at SEE have reviewed this guidance. Our guidance note, which is available to all our members, is intended as a practical approach to outline what we will be considering when asked to undertake independent investigations on your behalf, to ensure we comply with your policies and procedures and employment legislation.
Members can view the guidance note here.
All county, unitary and district councils and police authorities in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and East and West Sussex can be full members of SEE.
