A grievance is where an employee has raised or wishes to raise their concerns or problems with their employer. Commonly, grievances may include problems at work such as bullying, any concerns about poor working conditions, disclosures (such as whistleblowing) or a breach of contract.
If you are unhappy about something in your workplace, Hodgkinsons Employment Solicitors can help you to file a complaint to your employer, known as a grievance. Initially, your Solicitor will provide you with expert advice as to whether or not you should follow a grievance process. If you choose to pursue the claim, your Employment Solicitor will assist you with the preparation of the Statement of Grievance and support you through the subsequent process.
There is currently no formal legal process involved with raising a grievance, however, both parties involved are required to comply with the ACAS Code of Practice.
