This bulletin follows on from yesterday's Email (dealing with the government's response to its consultation on the statutory dispute resolution procedures).
This morning, ACAS published the new draft Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures. This will replace the existing Code of Practice, and it incorporates the minimum statutory and disciplinary procedures set out in the Employment Act 2002.
The draft Code has been published to give interested parties the opportunity to comment. Consultation closes on 14th April 2004.
