Employment Law (UK) List - 
ACAS has issued a new draft Code on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures.

It is contained in a consultation document - responses due by 24th March 2000.

You can obtain a copy of the Code by replying to this Email with a blank message (Word document, 227K), alternatively downloading it from . I have not attached the file to this Email because of its size.
