Question 1 – Essay 
“It’s all about safety. It’s our customers’ safety and our staff’s safety. The quicker we get on top of this dreadful disease, the quicker we can all return to normal and get this country’s economy back on track. I know there are critics out there painting this as a human rights issue, but all I want is to ensure both our people and our customers are safe”.

Question 2 – Problem Question 
Best Kitchens Ltd.  Is a company designing and manufacturing fitted and  custom-made kitchen  furniture  operating  from  a  Business  Park  in Chelmsford. The company has further sales outlets in Cambridge, Ipswich and Norwich. There are 250 workers in the company, which has been operating successfully for fifteen years.  You are the new Human Resources Manager based at the Head Office.  You have found since you started your job that there appears to have been no formal training on handling difficult HR issues for line management. There is a formal disciplinary procedure and a formal grievance procedure   in   place, both   of   which   appear   to   have   been   copied   from   an   out-dated Government website without modification. There is also a ‘Staff Handbook’, which is given to all new employees when they start work at Best Kitchens Ltd., but which also appears to be quite flimsy and out of date. 
Extracts from the Disciplinary and Grievance procedures, and the Staff Handbook, are all reproduced at the end of this case scenario.

This Procedure applies  to  all  current  employees  of  the  company  and  covers  all  issues which are amenable to local determination and resolution.  The guiding principle of this
Procedure is that issues should be resolved as near their point of origin as possible and as soon as possible.  In consequence the timescales included in the Procedure may be extended or shortened by mutual consent. 
Stage 1
An employee  who  wishes  to  raise  any  issue  in  which  s/he  is  directly  concerned  must first raise it with their immediate manager, making it clear that s/he is taking the first step in the procedure. 
Stage 2
Their immediate manager will arrange a meeting as quickly as possible so that the issue can be discussed with the employee(s).  This meeting will be held in a room away from the general work environment.
If a satisfactory solution has not been reached within a maximum of 5 working days the
employee  may  refer  the  issue  to  their  Manager’s  superior  under  Stage  3  of  the Procedure.
Stage 3
The Manager’s superior will arrange a meeting as quickly as possible so that the issue can be discussed with the employee(s).   If the employee wishes to have a fellow employee as their representative present at this meeting, then the employee must notify the manager of their representative’s name and they will be invited to attend. If a satisfactory solution has not been reached within seven working days, the employee may refer the issue to the HR Manager who will arrange for a Senior Manager to meet with the employee(s) and (where requested) their representative under stage 4 below.
Stage 4
The Senior Manager will arrange a meeting as soon as possible so that the issue can be
discussed  with  the  employee(s)  and  his/her  representative  –  this  meeting  shall  take place not more than seven working days from the employee’s request.
If the Senior Manager is unable to resolve the grievance, the employee(s) can request a final “Appeal” meeting with the Managing Director.
