Dealing with disputes in work

There will be times when arguments or issues arise between employees in work. What are your obligations regarding such matters? Do you let them get on with it, do you investigate the concerns, what if one person is not being truthful?

Alternatively, what if an employee alleges someone has stolen something from them, or what if an employee is consistently late or leaves work early? These are all issues that commonly occur and no-one goes into business thinking how they will deal with such matters.

Whatever the issue or matter of concern it should be dealt with quickly, fairly, and in accordance with your internal policies and procedures.

This is where HR-Onsite can be invaluable. We will meet with all the parties on an impartial basis to hold an Investigation, Grievance and/or Disciplinary Hearing and determine the true facts. This can be done without us having any pre-conceived idea or knowledge of the individuals that is likely to sway us one way or the other in deciding an outcome. 

We will provide you with a detailed report stating the facts, the oral and documentary evidence provided to us, our findings based upon the evidence, legislation, guidance, and caselaw, and we will provide you with proposals for resolving the issues.

You are then free to decide the outcome and can avoid any allegations of bias, favouritism, allegiance to one person, management sticking together, or not wanting to rock the boat.

Let HR-Onsite remove the stress and anxiety, on all parties, by conducting the meeting, making any necessary enquiries or investigation, and making proposals for an impartial, fair, and transparent outcome to the issue.

We will deal with all meetings and difficult situations in a non-confrontational manner and will support, guide, and assist you in reaching a fair and transparent outcome to the issues facing your business.

Not only will this show to the employees that you take their concerns seriously by dealing with the matter correctly, professionally, impartially, and in accordance with your policies and procedures, but it highlights to all staff that you are a caring employer who takes such allegations seriously for their benefit.

At HR-Onsite we deal with a range of HR-related meetings including Disciplinary, Grievance, Redundancy, Capability, Investigation Meetings as well as Appeal Hearings and Settlement Agreement negotiations.
