This Guide provides in depth direction on writing a grievance about the behaviour of a colleague, manager or supervisor. It shows you how to escalate breaches of policy and employment law, strategies and issues of limitation that you need to be aware of.
What is a grievance?
The ACAS Code defines grievances as “concerns, problems or complaints that employees raise with their employers”. You can raise a grievance about things like your terms and conditions of employment, health and safety, workplace relationships, new working practices, organisational changes, equality, discrimination, bullying and harassment, and whistleblowing. Always try to resolve problems informally before raising a grievance.
Complain about the behaviour of a colleague, manager or supervisor
This guide shows you how to write a grievance about behaviour that you are unhappy with, which is not as serious as bullying and harassment but is causing you to have problems at work. It helps you lay the foundations for discussions about the behaviour, whilst at the same time formalising your complaint in order to protect you position if matters do not improve. Perhaps your manager or supervisor is making you work in a way that is causing you problems within your team or you have problems with a colleague’s attitude, or capability for the job. Where the grievance is against your line manager, you should approach another manager or raise the issue with your HR department if there is one.
Surviving a disciplinary investigation at work by: Employee Rescue £17.99
What is a disciplinary investigation?
A disciplinary investigation is a fact-finding mission. No more and no less. The purpose is to find out on the balance of probabilities whether there is a case to answer. It is not an exercise to find out whether an employee is guilty or not. Workplace investigations can be carried out in a variety of situations, and not just in disciplinary action. Investigations happen for example where there are;
- Matters of misconduct
- Bullying and harassment
- Whistleblowing allegations
You continue to have employment rights during the investigation. The ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures applies to any matters relating to discipline. Your employer has a legal duty to act reasonably and use a fair procedure. The ACAS Guide gives directions on what it is to act reasonably and fairly, and the duties are further developed by the Courts and Tribunals in case law.
This e-book is your essential step-by-step guide to the workplace investigation process. It includes templates for witness statements and preparing your chronology.
