Acas guidance update 

Disciplinary and grievance procedures during the coronavirus pandemic

The law and Acas Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures still apply during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This includes while social distancing and lockdown measures are in place.

The employer needs to decide if it would still be fair and reasonable to carry on with or start a disciplinary or grievance procedure while:

  • people are on temporary leave because of coronavirus (on ‘furlough’)
  • following social distancing and other public health guidelines, if they’re in the workplace
  • people are working from home, and it would have to be carried out remotely
