The importance of effective grievance handling is vital to any organisation employing staff. Employees are increasingly aware of their rights and the obligation on employers to have appropriate procedures in place.
Because of this, it is important you have a system in place allowing you to deal with any grievance robustly whilst still maintaining a productive relationship with staff.
We regularly advise employers who are faced with a grievance from a member of staff. This can involve helping with the investigation, gathering evidence and assisting with any appeal. We aim to do this by providing clear straight forward advice on procedures and giving our honest and balanced opinion on the outcome where required.
We regularly draft and review grievance policies on behalf of clients. We are also very experienced in the drafting of invitation and outcome letters ensuring you follow the correct procedures when handling a grievance on behalf of a member of staff.
