As an employee if you cannot resolve matters informally with your manager or feel unable to do so you should raise a grievance. Some companies have an internal grievance process but if not you should write to the most appropriate person (normally HR if the business has such a role) setting out your complaints.
Some employees find this is a good time to seek advice on your rights and any claims you may have. Others prefer assistance with the grievance process in writing the letter and any scripts for the hearing. I can help with all these aspects. If you have already gone through the grievance process and are not satisfied with the outcome, you should appeal. If this is unsuccessful you should take advice about your next options. There are strict time limits in most employment law claims so time is always of the essence to take advice. You should not allow the time to expire whilst you undergo the appeal process.
Failing to raise a grievance before you bring a claim against your employer can reduce the amount you receive as compensation and often it is possible to resolve the matter without the need to take it that far, so it is worth raising a grievance in the first instance if time permits.
I offer a fixed fee initial appointment so you can get advice before you enter into the grievance process, during the process or if you do not get the outcome you wanted. Contact me for further information.
