Mock disciplinary investigation and hearing


Join Acas as we guide you through the disciplinary process. We start with the informal stages and initial investigation. Enacting key meetings, the day culminates in a ‘live’ hearing.

We will facilitate discussion throughout the day, providing best practice advice, relevant case law and highlighting potential pitfalls. Ultimately, you will discover if the outcome and rationale match your opinion.

Business need

A good disciplinary procedure with clear rules benefits you and your employees by setting standards of conduct. They also help you to act fairly and consistently.

Embarking on a disciplinary process can be daunting. This interactive event sets out the best practice for disciplinary hearings in accordance with the Acas Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance procedures.
