Call for Evidence on dismissal

Proposals to examine the current dismissal process have been announced by the Government with the publication of a Call for Evidence.

Through the Call for Evidence, the Government is seeking to establish a strong evidence base on the current understanding of the dismissal process, including awareness, understanding and use of the Acas Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance. The Government will be seeking the views of employees, business organisations and all other interested parties.

The Government has also published the Employment Law Review annual update in the Houses of Parliament, outlining how the review has been taken forward. The report summarises the current programme and looks ahead to further areas it is considering as part of the Review.

In addition, it was also announced that the Employer’s Charter, first published in January 2011, has been updated to include pointers on sickness absence and recruitment. The Charter aims to counter the misconception that employment protections are all one-way - towards the employee. It will give greater clarity to managers on what they can already do to deal with issues in the workplaces, on subjects such as performance, sick leave, maternity leave, requests for flexible working and redundancy.
