From time to time, employees become unhappy at work. Terms and conditions, relationships with colleagues, bullying and harassment and working conditions are all areas that sometimes cause concern to employees.
Employers can usually deal with grievances in an informal manner, but when things become more complicated, James House HR can provide expert, professional help together with guidance on grievance policy and procedure for employees. We will assist throughout the process from drafting initial letters to providing hands-on support throughout grievance investigations and hearings. We also offer a mediation service.
Frequently Asked Questions
My employee has resigned in anger without a job to go to. Shall I just accept it?
No. The matter should be treated just like a grievance, otherwise you may face a claim for constructive dismissal.
My employee is always moaning about work. Shall I just ignore him?
It is best to tackle this head on and require them , in writing, to either bring a formal grievance in writing, or stop complaining! This will give you the best legal protection. For further advice, contact us.
