What is a Disciplinary and Grievance policy?
A company disciplinary policy should detail the standards and procedures involved when dealing with an employee's misconduct and/or poor performance. This is often raised by a manager or supervisor with the goal of working with the employee to highlight and improve their conduct or performance.
Grievances on the other hand are concerns or complaints that staff raise with their employers. A company should make it simple and straightforward for its employees to communicate these issues and is where a grievance policy can set out the procedure that needs to be followed.
Both disciplinary and grievance issues are often handled in a similar way, with the process generally being:
Problem initially raised
Attempts to deal and correct with informally
Management undertakes an investigation
A hearing or formal meeting takes place to discuss
Decision on made on any action
Right to appeal under a formal appeals process
As the process for grievance and disciplinary occurrences are similar it makes sense to have policies that complement each other.
