Grievance Procedures and Hearings
From time to time you will be confronted with issues and conflicts that may arise in the work place. Staff grievances have the potential to absorb a huge amount of management time. It is therefore crucial to have the correct procedures in place to deal with them. Often, raising a grievance is the first step to a tribunal claim, especially where your employee has taken legal advice. It is therefore important that your managers are trained in how to handle a grievance, what to say and how to conduct the necessary investigation to reach a justifiable conclusion.
We are experts in managing employee grievances. We will help you every step of the way so that you achieve the best possible outcome and minimise the risk of any tribunal claims.
