Employees miss out on fair treatment
1 April 2005 | 0
Less than two-thirds of companies offer employees the chance to appeal against a disciplinary decision, according to a recent survey on HR practices carried out by Graphite HRM.
The survey which was carried out at the end of last year, found that while over 80 percent of companies had a disciplinary procedure in place to inform employees how they would be dealt with if they broke rules or procedures, 36 percent of companies didn’t offer an appeals process against an unfair decision.
The survey also showed that fifty percent of companies surveyed didn’t train managers in how to use the company disciplinary procedure. It also found that a high number of companies surveyed had refused requests from employees wishing to move from full-time to part-time working.
