Handling Disciplinaries and Grievances FAQs
What is the difference between disciplinaries and grievances?
Grievances are complaints made by employees of a business to their employer in the hope of having the situation resolved. A grievance hearing can be held to allow the employer to better understand the complaint made, and for them to agree a way forward with the employee to resolve the issue at hand.
Disciplinary hearings are held to consider an act of misconduct by an employee, usually after an investigation has been carried out. Following the hearing, the employer can conclude whether or not they believe the employee is ‘guilty’ of the alleged misconduct and decide on what disciplinary action, if any, is appropriate in the circumstances.
