  • How to survive a criminal charge, conviction or caution at work by: Employee Rescue £9.99

    You can be disciplined and ultimately lose your job for criminal offences occurring at work and outside work. This guide takes you through your rights and the options available to you in such a situation.

    Criminal charge, conviction, caution or police investigation

    If you have received a criminal charge, conviction, been cautioned or are the subject of a police investigation at work, then this is the guide for you. ACAS says that just because you are charged with or convicted of a criminal offence, received a caution or are the subject of a police investigation, is not enough in itself for disciplinary action to be taken against you. Your Employer needs to consider the impact of the charge or conviction on your ability to do the job, and whether the charge or conviction impacts on your work relationships and/or customers.

    If the outcome of your Employers investigation shows that some disciplinary action is necessary, your employer does not have to await the outcome of prosecution before starting the disciplinary procedure. The police should not be asked to conduct any investigation on behalf of your employer, neither should they be present at any meeting or disciplinary meeting.

    This e-book provides you with essential information and guidance on;

    • Your right to silence
    • How to deal with a charge or conviction
    • How to deal with custody or remand
    • Frustration of contract

    And much more.

  • How to write a grievance about changes to your employment contract by: Employee Rescue £17.99

    This guide provides in depth direction on writing a grievance about for unauthorised changes to your employment contract. It shows you how to escalate breaches of policy and employment law, strategies and issues of limitation that you need to be aware of.

    What is a grievance?

    The ACAS Code defines grievances as “concerns, problems or complaints that employees raise with their employers”.  You can raise a grievance about things like your terms and conditions of employment, health and safety, workplace relationships, new working practices, organisational changes, equality, discrimination, bullying and harassment, and whistleblowing.   Always try to resolve problems informally before raising a grievance.

    Unauthorised changes to your  employment contract

    This grievance is about the situation where your employer proposes to make changes to your contract, or imposes changes without your permission, or without notifying you. In such a situation, your employer can make changes to particular terms in the contract, or remove the old contract entirely, and replace it with a new one. If your employer has also taken money from your wages without permission, See: How to write a grievance about unauthorised deductions from your wages.
    There are three ways in which employers usually carry out these changes as follows;

    • Propose a change and leave it for you to object. If you don’t object, then you are deemed to have accepted the change through acquiescence. This is sometimes sneaked in by re-issuing a section of an employment contract, updating the employment contract or re- issuing a section 1 statement of employment particulars.
    • Serve notice of the termination of the existing contract and then immediately re-engage you on the new terms.
    • Dismiss all relevant employees and then invite you to reapply for your jobs.

    In order for you to effectively resist these changes, you need to have a basic understanding of employment contracts, what the law allows your employer to do your rights and the options available to you. No matter how you choose to resolve the matter, in this sort of employment relationship problem you should always start by raising a formal grievance. This guide includes explanations of current relevant case law and legal terms. It provides you with the tools to raise an effective grievance about unauthorised changes to your employment contract.

     

     


  • Surviving a disciplinary investigation at work by: Employee Rescue £17.99

    What is a disciplinary investigation?

    A disciplinary investigation is a fact-finding mission. No more and no less. The purpose is to find out on the balance of probabilities whether there is a case to answer. It is not an exercise to find out whether an employee is guilty or not. Workplace investigations can be carried out in a variety of situations, and not just in disciplinary action. Investigations happen for example where there are;

    • Matters of misconduct
    • Capability
    • Bullying and harassment
    • Absence
    • Grievances
    • Whistleblowing allegations

    You continue to have employment rights during the investigation.  The ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures applies to any matters relating to discipline. Your employer has a legal duty to act reasonably and use a fair procedure. The ACAS Guide gives directions on what it is to act reasonably and fairly, and the duties are further developed by the Courts and Tribunals in case law.

    This e-book is your essential step-by-step guide to the workplace investigation process. It includes templates for witness statements and preparing your chronology. It does not just regurgitate generic information about internal investigation, but supplies you with directions on law and processes that you can apply to your own situation. The book has 61 pages of guidance which includes;

    Preparing your statement of defence
    Your rights in whistle-blowing investigations
    The allegations against you
    The investigation/fact-finding meeting
    Your right to confidentiality
    The evidence against you
    Witnesses and witness statements (including anonymous witnesses)
    Investigation of criminal offences at work

  • The Disciplinary Hearing by: Employee Rescue £17.99

    Your Employer can discipline you for conduct, capability or some other substantial reason. This book provides all the information, templates and guidelines that you need to help you through the disciplinary hearing.

    What is a Disciplinary Hearing?

    A disciplinary hearing is a meeting facilitated by your Employer to discuss allegations against you and to give you an opportunity to respond to those allegations. Your Employer can discipline you for conduct, capability or some other substantial reason. S13 (4) Employment Relations Act 1999 says that a disciplinary hearing is a hearing which could result in the administration of a formal warning to a worker by his employer, the taking of some other action in respect of a worker by his employer, or the confirmation of a warning issued or some other action taken. In 48 pages, this e-book guides you through your legal rights throughout the process, with tips, templates and tactics on what to do and how to protect yourself.
