Employees have extensive rights concerning the way in which disciplinary and grievance hearings are conducted. However, many rights do not arise unless specifically requested by the employee.
An employer is obliged to provide an employee within two months of commencing employment with written details of the disciplinary and grievance procedures that will be operated with respect to him/her. The employer must either give a document to the employee with the details, or alternatively inform him/her where and how he/she may see a copy of those procedures.
We have considerable experience in advising employees who are facing disciplinary action, and in assisting employees who wish to raise grievances.
