If somebody stole or defrauded your company and you dismiss them, why should they be awarded thousands of dollars in compensation?
Simply because the process followed wasn’t fair and reasonable.
So many companies issue employees with warnings or dismiss them, only to have the employee take a Personal Grievance and be awarded large amounts of compensation, even if the decision to dismiss was the right one. It all comes down to the steps you take during a disciplinary process to ensure you act in good faith.
The steps are not difficult once you know them, but there are a number of issues and fish hooks at each step that can trip you up. Once you know these, you’ll be able to always make sure you follow the right process to get the right outcome – and have no Personal Grievance claims.
