You may at times experience issues and conflict in the workplace and it is very important for the employment relationship that any issues are addressed promptly and effectively.
If your workplace issues cannot be resolved informally between you and your employer, you may wish to raise a formal grievance. An example of possible situations that may encourage you to make a grievance include:
- A variation to your employment contract that you are unhappy about;
- If you are experiencing discrimination in the workplace;
- Being asked to take on new duties as part of your job that you feel are not in line with your existing work practice;
- An issue with your pay or terms and conditions; and
- Poor working conditions, ranging from being bullied/harassed to being obliged to undertake tasks that you believe to be unsafe or inappropriate in any way.
While there is no formal legal process for raising a grievance, both parties to the employment relationship should comply with the ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) Code of Practice.
We can provide expert guidance on whether you should follow a grievance process and if you do, we can assist with the drafting of your grievance complaint and support you through the subsequent process. We can work on your behalf, taking complete ownership of your case, or you can simply seek out our advice and support only as and when you need to.
