Poor management of grievances, discipline and dismissals can be very costly in time, money and damage to employee relations. A thorough understanding of the legal environment, including how to apply the law correctly, is essential for good management.
This 2-day training course on discipline, grievance and dismissal law covers all key aspects of this fundamental area of employment law. Over the years it has offered countless participants the opportunity to evaluate, assess and review disciplinary, grievance and dismissal procedures.
