The Importance of having procedures/policies in place…..and following them.

At a recent Employment Appeals Tribunal the decision to award the Appellant €21,300 in compensation under the Unfair Dismissals Act was made given that “there were absolutely no Disciplinary procedures in place or being correctly operated in the workplace. There seems to have been a Grievance procedure set out in the Contract of Employment but this did not seem to be invoked.”

It just proves how very important it is to have these procedures and policies in place and when or if a situation arises where they are required that they are followed to the letter.

As an employer it is your obligation to have just and fair policies in place to protect both the Employee and the Employer.
