Why do you need a Grievance Procedure?

If an employee has issued a formal grievance at work, it must be handled with sensitivity and professionalism. There are strict rules and responsibilities that have been created through government acts and recommendations from ACAS. Failing to meet these standards can expose a business to unnecessary stress and risk.

What is a Grievance Procedure?

A grievance procedure outlines how formal and informal grievances will be dealt with in a company. It will include information on how an employee may make a grievance, how a line manager will conduct an investigation and even the structure of a meeting. All of this aims to provide a sense of structure and stability in what can be a very difficult situation. Our experienced and compassionate employment lawyers are here to help with creating and implementing effective grievance procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

A: A grievance at work is where the employee has a complaint about a work-related issue. On the other side, a disciplinary is when an employer needs to confront any misconduct from their employees.

A: All the time! Whether a grievance is raised formally or informally, an employer should take it seriously. This benefit’s all parties. The employer never wants to be in a position where the employee feels their grievance was ignored. If left unchecked, this could lead to a discrimination claim or constructive dismissal. That’s a risk no employer should take.

A: The employee could argue that because the employer has not followed a fair and reasonable procedure, they have been treated unfairly. Employees damages they receive in a court case can be increased by up to 25% if the employer did not follow guidance set by ACAS.

This is a “Forever Template”

We will continually update this template with the frequent Microsoft updates such as CSP and other flow down terms, plus we will update the relevant terms to ensure you can claim as many rebates as possible, and get recognised by Microsoft such as CPoR, (Claims Partner of Record) DPoR (Digital Partner of Record), and PAL (Partner Admin Link).

We will also continually update this template as the law changes, for example, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the effects of Brexit on our laws, as we untangle ourselves from the European Union.
