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.
This Guide provides in depth direction on writing your grievance including explanations of your rights. It shows you how to draft a compelling grievance and includes templates and precedents for different types of grievance.
