Employee Relations Written Guidance & Sample Documents

It is essential that employers have access to reliable information on employment issues and employment law. Therefore, the ECA want to make it as easy as possible for Members to access this information and be guided through the ‘minefield’ of employment law.

The ECA’s Employee Relations team have produced detailed employment guidance on aspects of managing employee relations, including: disciplinary procedures, managing grievance, dismissal warnings, managing redundancy, equality and more.

Our guides will help you with day-to-day employment issues that arise with some regularity.  Whilst our guidance is based on the requirements of the law, it avoids legal jargon and is set out in a format that is easy to understand and implement. Where appropriate, our guidance also includes sample letters and policies that employers can download and use.
