HR factsheet July 2017: survive summer without an employment tribunal

Councils need to be aware that whilst asking staff to be flexible and cover for absent colleagues, they need to ensure that requests to work extra hours don't result in breaches of the Working Time Regulations 1998, which could result in claims at the Employment Tribunal for breach of statutory rights.

Managing Employees' Performance

Managing Employees' Performance

Throughout 2015 we have encountered a number of Councils who struggle to manage either problems with their Employees' performance or behaviour, or to resolve staff grievances and complaints.

This is perfectly understandable, as most Town and Parish Councils employ small numbers of staff and don't experience these issues on a regular basis. Furthermore, the Council, who make up the 'management team', have not been selected for their managerial skills, but for their interest in the Community / Parish. However, when problems occur, it is they who are ultimately responsible for managing the process.

Mistakes can be costly, potentially resulting in claims for Unfair / Constructive Dismissal which could result in an Employee being awarded up to one years income. Furthermore, discrimination claims can result in unlimited compensation being awarded.

Consequently, it would be prudent for Councillors to ensure that they have a basic grasp of how to manage staff grievance and disciplinary matters, to ensure that they can address these issues when they occur.

Help can be found in the ACAS Grievance and Disciplinary procedures, which provide Employers with basic guidance on how to manage these problems. However, to help Councils we are providing the fundamental steps to take Councils through the basic steps - please open the document for full details.
