Dealing with Disciplinaries and Grievances

Staff disciplinaries and grievance issues are not something any business wants to deal with but by working with STEP HR you can be reassured that you comply with the required legal process and have all the support you and your employees need.


A disciplinary and grievance policy is something every business should have. We will work with you to ensure you are covered for every eventuality and your staff are fully aware of procedures to meet your business needs.

Staff Misconduct and Gross Misconduct

There are two main categories of disciplinaries:
Misconduct for minor infringements
Gross misconduct

We will assist business to conduct a lawful and thorough investigation into any employee misconduct or grievance. We can guide and train managers to be competent in following the correct procedures when these situations occur. Using STEP HR provides impartiality for businesses who don’t have this resource in-house.

Capability Policies and Guidance

Tackling an issue like underperformance or long-term absence is an uncomfortable situation many businesses encounter, it can prove complex procedurally but also emotionally challenging. STEP HR can assist managers to tackle these issues with consistency and a fair approach.

STEP HR will guide an employer through the applicable procedure whether this is managing an employee back to the workplace or, if necessary, out of the business.

Particular care is required when handling cases to ensure employees are treated fairly and the risks to the business are minimal.

If you need support with any of this issues please get in touch here.
