  • Dispute resolution procedures repeal: employers' questions answered

    Date:
    10 March 2009

    We answer employers' questions on the effects of the repeal of the statutory dispute resolution procedures on 6 April 2009 and their replacement with a "lighter touch" regime based on the new Acas code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures. Issues covered include: the processes to follow in redundancy dismissals and where a fixed-term contract expires without being renewed; employees' right to call relevant witnesses; dismissals that would have fallen under the modified statutory dismissal procedure; time limits for appeals; and grievances from ex-employees.
