Discipline & Grievance, Conducting Investigations

Successful organisations know that disciplinary and grievance procedures are an aid to effective management, enabling them to resolve issues quickly and cost-effectively rather than being used simply as a mechanism for imposing sanctions.

Having managers who are able to effectively handle disciplinary and grievance issues is therefore crucial for all organisations.
