Acas revises statutory guidance on disciplinary and grievance procedure

Helen Hughes
Solicitor, Veale Wasbrough Vizards

Acas has published a revised draft Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures in respect of accompaniment to disciplinary and grievance meetings.

The revised draft provides that an employer must agree to a worker's reasonable request to be accompanied at a disciplinary or grievance meeting by any companion from one of the statutory categories including a Trade Union official, a certified union representative or a fellow worker. The Code requires that the making of the worker's request to be accompanied is "reasonable" and confirms that the worker can change his chosen companion, without waiving their right to change their choice again.

The revised code has been laid before Parliament and is currently awaiting Parliamentary approval.
