ABSTRACT
The British Employment Act 2002 requires employers to review internal grievance and disciplinary procedures to ensure compliance with standards on the way workplace disputes are to be handled. The legislation introduces statutory dismissal and disciplinary procedures, as well as statutory grievance procedures. The procedures are a minimum requirement, and apply to all workplaces and all employees. The rules are intended to reduce the need for employers and employees to resort to tribunals to settle their differences, by encouraging communication and conciliation in the workplace.
