What is a Grievance?

A grievance is any concern, problem or complaint that an employee raises. It can relate to anything which is employment related.

A grievance can be made at any time if you believe your employer's actions to be unfair, or unjustified. 

It is usually advisable, where appropriate, to try and deal with grievances informally. If grievances cannot be dealt with informally, as a minimum standard, the formal Statutory Grievance Procedure must be followed.  

The employer should make employees aware of how to access their organisation’s code on grievances in the workplace and the procedure in making a formal grievance.   

Employers could face Tribunal proceedings against them if they fail to follow the Code of Practice when dealing with grievances. Failing to deal with grievances in a fair and reasonable manner can give rise to claims for constructive dismissal.

Types of grievance in the workplace

A grievance might relate to:

  • The job role itself and what the employee is expected to do
  • The employee is unhappy with their terms and conditions of employment
  • The way in which an employee feels that they are being treated at work, which might include feeling bullied, harassed, victimised or that they are in some way being discriminated against

All such grievances should be taken seriously however they are presented.

Corporate Investigations

Recent Case Study

Ensuring Compliance and Resolving Headaches

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.
