The procedure isn't contractual. * The procedure states that disciplinary actions can be taken after the case has been fully investigated. If it arises then the colleague may be suspended for a short period with pay, so that the case can be investigated. * If the company comes to an agreement that a colleague has committed gross misconduct, then the company may dismiss that colleague without a notice period or pay in lieu of notice. Disputes can also be resolved through trade unions. When an employee can't resolve anything from talking to the manager directly then it is ideal for that employee to join a trade union. This way the trade union will negotiate on behalf of the employee, until they come to an agreement. Trade unions can help to obtain higher pay, better working conditions, shorter working hours and legal protection against unfair dismissal. ACAS is another organisation, which aims to prevent and end industrial disputes. ACAS stands for Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service. * The organisation provides advice and information to firms, trade unions and individual employees. * It provides conciliation, which means taking both sides of the story in an industrial dispute, so that it can find an agreement to end the dispute. * It arbitrates between the two sides, so it listens to both sides and then decides what a fair settlement is. Both sides then must agree in advance to accept the ACAS's verdict. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 Mudathir Subahi ...read more.
