Engage in Learning launches a Discipline and Grievance e-learning course
In four sections, plus a 'Summary and Next Steps' section as well as a post-course test, the e-learning materials cover:
· An Introduction – exploring the definitions of, and difference between, 'disciplinary' (incorporating such issues as timekeeping, performance, absence and behaviour) and 'grievance' (including issues such as discrimination, bullying & harassment, work terms & conditions) scenarios. Among other things, this section emphasises that the disciplinary procedure is about improvement, not punishment.
· Dealing with disciplinary issues – outlining informal and formal disciplinary scenarios as well as the appeals process. This section explains the ACAS Code of Practice (CoP) since following this CoP is what an employment tribunal will look for (and an employment tribunal can add up to 25% to a compensation claim if procedures are followed incorrectly)
· Handling a grievance – with the process being explained via several interactive scenarios.
· Appeals – again, with the process being explained via various interactive scenarios.
Kate Carter, Engage in Learning's Operations and Marketing Manager, explained, "Having differentiated between a disciplinary and a grievance situation, the course explains how to conduct informal and formal reviews. It outlines the role of ACAS, and also looks at effective and efficient ways to resolve these situations to everyone's benefit.

"When it comes to handling a grievance," Kate continued, "the course explains that it's helpful to take time to explain how and why organisational and management decisions are made. Not only does this keep the process respectful to all involved but it also helps the atmosphere to remain 'adult' – and, often, leads to clearing up swiftly any misunderstanding or miscommunications."
