Occasionally in the workplace, there might be an issue you feel you need to handle formally. This is known as a ‘grievance’. A grievance could be in relation to any number of things, such as changes at work or your treatment by another member of staff.


All employers should be ready to deal with grievances. There should be a grievance procedure in your contract of employment or in your employee handbook.


Unfortunately, there are times when employers do not have, or follow, grievance procedures, and some can consider employees that have raised a grievance to be troublesome. This could lead to treating the employee differently from other members of staff, made to feel overlooked, pushed out or even dismissed.


If you feel that you want to raise a formal grievance but don’t know how to go about it the best way or your grievance is not being taken seriously or being dealt with appropriately, call the Lamb Brooks Employment Law Department today.

"Very professional and empathetic."
