The final version of the Employment Act (Dispute Resolution) Regulations 2004 have been approved by Parliament. They flesh out the framework statutory disciplinary and grievance procedures in the Employment Act 2002.
I will shortly be producing detailed lecture notes on these, together with a pack of training materials which can be used to train clients. For details, please Email me. I will also be producing a new edition of Managing Dismissals Fairly, to be published in October 2004, containing guidance for solicitors and HR departments on the practical steps to take (and evidence to gather) when dismissing employees.
The new statutory procedures are confirmed as coming into force on 1st October 2004.
