New employment legislation requires employers in Great Britain to review internal grievance and disciplinary procedures to ensure compliance with standards. Laytons, the national firm of solicitors, are advising employers to review their grievance and disciplinary procedures, to ensure compliance with new rules on the way workplace disputes are to be handled. The Employment Act 2002, which became law at the beginning of July, 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. One consequence for employers is liability under a new category of automatic unfair dismissal.
