Grievance procedure

Workers may have problems or concerns about their work, working environment or working relationships that they wish to raise and have addressed. A grievance procedure provides a mechanism for these to be dealt with fairly and speedily, before they develop into major problems and potentially collective disputes.

Employers are statutorily required in the written statement of terms and conditions of employment to specify, by description or otherwise, a person to whom the employee can apply if they have a grievance and they are also required by statute to allow a worker to be accompanied at certain grievance hearings.

Employers should have procedures which comply with the ACAS Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures.
