Acas publishes guides to dealing with common employment issues

26 April 2013 #Employment

Acas has published 6 step by step guides aimed at small businesses, line managers and supervisors for use when dealing with common business situations and potential problem areas at work. Breaking these areas down into checklists and reminders of things to consider, practical examples, and potential legal issues to be aware of, the guides cover:

  • Recruiting an employee
  • Settling in a new employee
  • The new employee’s contract
  • Managing a complaint at work
  • Managing staff absence
  • How to get the best out of your staff

Acas has also published a new guide to managing disciplinary situations including tips and practical guidance to identify and investigate problems, meet with the employee and take action.

  • Managing discipline

 The guides can be used whether completely new to the situation or as a refresher of existing knowledge. They contain useful links to other ACAS information and pointers to areas where further more detailed legal advice may be required.
