Discrimination in work?

What should you do if you receive an allegation from an employee that they are being discriminated in work? This may be due to their age, race, sex, or disability. Sometimes the discrimination may not be obvious. They may tell you that their colleagues’ talk about them behind their back, exclude them from conversations, or their Manager gives them more work or more difficult work than they give to others.

In these circumstances it is difficult to determine the truth, but the impact on the business may be immense if the issue isn’t dealt with quickly and correctly.

This is where HR-Onsite can be invaluable. We will meet with all the parties on an impartial basis to hold an Investigation and/or Grievance Hearing to 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 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, or allegiance to one person.

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 will show 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.
