As an employee, there have been no changes to your legal rights when it comes to disciplinary and grievance procedures, even while social distancing and lockdown measures are in place.
- You can still raise a grievance against your employer while you are working from home, or on furlough.
- If you choose to, you may take part in a grievance investigation or hearing whilst on furlough.
- You still have the right to be accompanied to a disciplinary or grievance hearing by a chosen companion, even if it’s being carried out through a video meeting.
- If you want to make a claim to an employment tribunal, the legal time limit is still the same during the coronavirus pandemic, even if a disciplinary or grievance procedure has been postponed.
If you feel that you have been treated unfairly by your employer, or have any other employment law questions, get in touch with our employment expert Ellie Humphris on Eleanorhumphris@fsmsolicitors.co.uk.
