 Employment processes: how to handle performance, disciplinary and restructuring processes (and avoid personal grievance claims!)

Having a clear strategy to address performance and disciplinary issues, as well as to safely achieve restructuring including redundancy is key to avoiding expensive and time consuming personal grievance claims. In this session we’ll talk about the difference between poor performance and misconduct, and the “need to know” legal requirements to address these issues as well as what you need to do where you want to make changes to roles within the business by restructuring. We’ll step you through the process to follow, and share practical tips to avoid common pitfalls. We’ll also cover the “worst case scenario” – what to do if you are faced with a personal grievance claim. There will be time for questions so that you can be confident you’ll leave knowing what you need to about addressing performance and disciplinary concerns with employees, and how to restructure.
