We advised a client in the tech industry on allegations raised by an employee of inappropriate comments made by a line manager in the office.  The employee raised a grievance and stopped coming into work on the basis of the stress and anxiety caused by the events.  We had drafted our client’s staff handbook and we were able to guide the client through dealing with the grievances, culminating in disciplinary sanctions for the line manager and the employee feeling like they had been heard and that the matter had been dealt with fairly.  This avoided a potential employment tribunal claim, which would have been costly for the employer and a loss of management time.
