The revised ACAS Code on Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures in the Workplace was laid before parliament yesterday. Subject to parliamentary approval, it will come into force on 1st October 2004.
There is substantially more information about the new dispute resolution procedures than appeared in the draft Code (which went out to consultation earlier this year). In keeping with ACAS Codes, it is written in user-friendly language and is a very good summary of the law (and good practice) relating to conduct issues in the workplace.
I am offering in-house seminars on the new dispute resolution procedures (in-house, up to three hours). Click the link on the right for more details (including fees).
