For expert legal advice and/or support during an employment Disciplinary or Grievance Hearing, call the Employment Law Solicitors at Slater and Gordon Lawyers on freephone 0800 916 9060 or contact us.

Slater and Gordon Lawyers offer expert legal advice and assistance throughout the employment disciplinary hearing process, including preparation for the hearing, analysis of your case and how to respond, bringing related claims for unfair dismissal or discrimination where necessary; or negotiating a termination of employment.

As employees cannot generally bring a Lawyer to a disciplinary hearing, we offer our unique Executive Reps service for people who are not members of a Trade Union. This provides you with an experienced companion who can attend your disciplinary hearing with you, make representations on your behalf and provide you with much-needed psychological support.

The way a disciplinary hearing is run varies from employer to employer and can be anything from a simple meeting to a mini-trial with the company Lawyers in attendance.

Being summoned to a disciplinary hearing can be distressing. There is a risk that the hearing could result in dismissal, a formal warning that the employee must improve, or some kind of sanction being taken. The right legal representation and support in an employment hearing can make all the difference in the outcome.

Grievance Hearings

If you have a grievance at work, Slater and Gordon Lawyers can help. This could include drafting of the initial grievance, guidance and negotiation, help with preparation for the hearing, attendance at the hearing, analysis of the grievance response and dealing with any appeal or subsequent tribunal claim.

Employees who submit a written grievance should be invited to a grievance hearing by their employer to discuss in more detail the complaints raised in writing. This can be daunting for many employees, but others see it as an opportunity to make their concerns heard.
