This page explains the Acas Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures (‘the Acas Code') when it applies and why it is important for employers to comply with its provisions.

We recommend that you read the Code and consider whether your practices, procedures and written policies comply with it. You can access the Acas Code here.

The Code is supplemented by more comprehensive Acas guidance on discipline and grievances which provides helpful supplementary guidance.
