Dealing with conduct in the workplace
As a business owner, a manager or a team leader, your role can be thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding, but as you will know, this is a role that is not without its challenges. However great your company or your team there will always be a time when a member of staff does not act at work in a way you would expect them to….that’s life! This means that on occasions you will have to follow your own disciplinary process.
When an employee’s conduct is of concern you need to deal with it quickly and effectively to avoid more serious and potentially detrimental activities that could follow.

Health and safety
As a business owner, health and safety is extremely important within your business, it reduces the risk of injuries or fatalities and creates a safe and happy place for everyone to work – but sadly health and safety in the workplace isn’t quite as easy as that. As a business owner you have legal responsibilities to protect yourself, your employees, customers and visitors when in your business.
Your health and safety responsibilities include providing all employees with a written health and safety statement, when you have employed five or more people. It is also your responsibility to ensure that the equipment you provide is maintained and safe at all times, provide any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and that you provide any necessary training.
Dealing with disputes
From time to time in business, employee grievances will arise and it is essential that these are dealt with effectively and efficiently in order to save management time and also to preserve and protect employee relations, while keeping the business out of employment tribunals.
A grievance is a concern, problem, worry or complaint that is raised by an employee. The grievance could be about any number of issues including their workload, the working environment, their line manager, with a colleague or their pay and so on.
