Does the ACAS wbsite have any examples? I think it used to. If not, I am sure they will give you some guidance.

Hi

 

Why don't you just buy the new PLA book and download them. I think its about £12 but will save you much more than that it time and effort.

 

Do you know what book they are in, i have the policies book but its not in there?????????

Hello,

 

We felt this area was a minefield. It all changes so much, so as a team, we made a decision to refer to the latest guidance.

 

Therefore all contracts read the same; Please refer to the latest guidance from Acas for the current discuplinary/grievance procedures.

 

We felt we have wasted so much time/paper constantly updating it all that we were constantly out of touch.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Spiral.

one thing that it is easy to fall foul of is your list of gross misconduct. We are just going through motions with someone who shouted at a child. I would like to dismiss - but it is not in this list. Previously, I tried to dismiss someone who brought in a union rep, and not only did I have to reinstate her AND wipr out the offence completely, but I have now to be very careful with her - can't offer her redundancy etc.

Just trying to update our policies and the Disciplinary Policy is the only 'PLA downloaded' one and it must be from the year dot, none of us understand it.

 

having done a forum search this post seems the most relevant......could anyone tell me how they have written theirs please or have everyone done the "will contact ACAS for upto date advice" wording?

I have to say that suits me, but would Ofsted be ok with this??

 

many thanks
