Grievance Procedures and Hearings

Has a member of your staff raised a grievance?  Do you have a policy in place to deal with it?  Do you want an expert to take care of it for you?

Staff grievances have the potential to absorb huge amounts of management time.  It is crucial to have the correct procedures in place to deal with them, as handling them badly can lead to increases in tribunal awards should the worst happen.  Often, raising a grievance is the first step to a tribunal claim, especially where your employee has taken legal advice.  This makes it crucial that your managers are trained in how to handle a grievance, what to say and how to conduct the necessary interviews to reach a justifiable conclusion.
