Raising Complaints and Grievances

During employment, employees sometimes have to deal with issues at their workplace which have caused them difficulties or upset and if they can’t be dealt with informally, there is sometimes a need to deal with them on a formal basis by lodging a grievance. We’re on hand to help you when it comes to raising complaints and grievances.

How our Grievance Lawyers can help you

As experts in advising employees on issues surrounding grievances at work, we will listen to your complaint, discuss the facts from the outset and advise you on any relevant documentation to support your grievance.

Thereafter, we will help you draft your grievance letter which will contain all the relevant details including the circumstances which have led to you having to raise a complaint.

What are the advantages of raising a grievance?

By lodging a grievance, you will be able to set out why you are aggrieved and therefore your employer will have to investigate your concerns on a formal basis.

If your grievances are not resolved, you may then wish to lodge a claim at the employment tribunal and get legal assistance from our tribunal lawyers for employees.
