Managing Disciplinaries

Why choose this course?

Many managers are thrust into the disciplinary process when they are selected to chair
a disciplinary hearing.

Sometimes unbeknownst to them, on taking on this role they are also assuming the primary responsibility for giving evidence to a Tribunal on behalf of the organisation, if an employee aggrieved at their decision decides to assert their right to bring a claim at the Tribunal. This course seeks to give managers the knowledge and tools they need to take tough decisions in a reasoned and reasonable manner to reduce legal risk. We often run this course alongside our Managing Investigations course as a 1.5 day combined course package.
