Grievances: Deal with a formal grievance

When to use this grievances workflow

Use this grievances workflow to deal with a formal grievance in line with the "Acas code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures"; inviting the employee to a meeting to discuss his or her grievance and offering the right of appeal against your decision.

While any failure to follow the code is not actionable in itself, an employment tribunal hearing a relevant case will take the code into account, and may increase any compensation awarded by up to 25% where the employer has unreasonably failed to comply with it.
