Conducting Discipline and Grievance Investigations training

The Acas Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures requires sufficient investigations to establish the facts of cases. These investigations must be carried out fairly and thoroughly. This one day practical session will help you to manage what is possibly the most important and often most challenging part of managing disciplinary and grievance cases.

This training course will consist of three, two-hour sessions:

– Thursday 7, Thursday 14 and 21 October – 10.30am – 12.30pm

The course is suitable for anyone who may be undertaking an investigation, such as line managers and HR professionals who may be supporting line managers through the process.
