Disciplinary and Grievance Interviews
As an employer, at some point, you may need to conduct disciplinary and grievance interviews. Nobody enjoys attending these types of meetings. They can be very stressful and often of a sensitive nature. Ultimately, your goal is to capture an accurate account of events in order to give a fair decision.
You could have a note-taker present instead of recording the meeting. In the past you may have had a secretary present taking notes in shorthand. These notes may be difficult to read and therefore open to possible errors. In addition, the note-taker’s time could be better spent elsewhere. These meetings are very stressful and sensitive. Thus, the interviewee will benefit from less people being present.
Your main objective in a disciplinary or grievance meeting is to get to the facts. As a manager, you can only base your decision on facts. So, recording the meeting will result in a digital audio file that can be accurately transcribed. Thus, you can then print these out and highlight the facts in the text. Ultimately, this can help you to come to an outcome.
When you are performing regular formal meetings it is worth investing in a recording device. Furthermore, they are not expensive and are certainly worth the investment. They will save you time and money in the long run. Check out our blog post on recording devices.
You can provide the attendee with a copy of the transcript. Thus, this will eliminate any doubt as to who said what.
Should you have to attend a tribunal you can produce an accurate transcript of the hearing.
