Statutory Dispute Resolution Procedures


The Employment Act 2002 (Dispute Resolution) Regulations came into force on 1 October 2004. They impact on both employers and employees.

Under the regulations all employers, regardless of their size, have to have in place minimum statutory procedures for dealing with dismissal, disciplinary action and grievances in the workplace. There is a legal requirement for them to inform their employees. Most employees have to raise a grievance with their employer before applying to an employment tribunal.
