For more information on the application of this code of conduct, please see the Transaction Agreements Guide (PDF, 512KB, 66 pages). – the expectation that workers can be accompanied at conciliation meetings should be sufficient to seek advice, to receive an appointment, to review the draft contract, to obtain further information, etc. In all four examples, the employer could demonstrate compliance with a rule of good practice that simply states that it should allow the worker to be accompanied. In three of them, however, the manner is unreasonable. Section 4 of the CASA Code of Conduct deals with transaction agreements that can be used to resolve serious complaints, disciplinary issues and workplace complaints. These contracts are legally binding and, if concluded by both parties, they waive the right of the person to pursue the issue set out in the agreement before the courts or in an employment tribunal. Transaction agreements generally include termination of the worker`s contract and some sort of compensation paid by the employer to the worker in exchange for the worker abandoning the business. In addition to the CASA Code of Conduct, employers and workers can refer to discipline and complaints in the workplace: the CASA guide, which contains non-legal guidelines on discipline and resolution of workplace complaints. The CASA Code of Conduct explains what is expected of organizations and individuals in terms of fairness and transparency in all disciplinary proceedings or formal appeals. We also offer training to ensure that HR teams, superiors and superiors have the skills and knowledge to properly implement codes of conduct.

Transaction agreements are optional. The parties do not need to agree or have discussions about it if they do not wish to do so. Similarly, the parties are not obliged to accept the terms originally proposed. There may be a negotiation process in which both parties make proposals and counter-proposals until an agreement is reached, or both parties recognize that no agreement is possible. Discussions on the transaction agreements and Section 111A of the 1996 ERDF provide that termination offers may be treated confidentially on agreed terms (i.e.

as part of a transaction agreement), meaning that they cannot be used as evidence in the context of an unfair dismissal right in an employment tribunal. Under Section 111A, these negotiations can be dealt with before the end and confidentiality, even if there is no current employment dispute or if one or more parties are not aware of an employment problem. Section 111A may also apply to offers of a settlement agreement on the basis of an existing dispute, as the principle of non-application may also apply in such cases. 7. However, there are some exceptions to the application of Section 111A. Claims relating to an automatically unjustified ground of dismissal, such as denunciation, union affiliation or legal rights citing, are not covered by the confidentiality provisions of Section 111A.
