Details

  • The Acas Code of Practice is the minimum a workplace should follow when dealing with discipline and grievance procedures. The Code is not law but if a case reaches employment tribunal, the judge will look at whether the employer has followed the Code in a fair way.
  • The Acas Code mainly applies to anyone with employee employment status. To help working relationships run smoothly, employers might want to use the same process for workers.

  • The Acas guide to discipline and grievances at work is a non-statutory guide that gives additional information on how to follow a fair process.
