Discipline and Policies
The topics covered in this section are:
To comply with the Acas Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures (PDF, 167KB), your employer should have written policies and procedures for how workplace issues are dealt with.
Your employer should explain these policies and procedures clearly to you when you first join. Make sure you are aware of all the rules that apply to you at work, as breaking the rules could result in disciplinary action – and even dismissal.
You are entitled to a document setting out details of disciplinary and grievance procedures, or information about where to find them, within two months of your work start date.
