Grievances

Raising a grievance at work

If you have a complaint or problem at work that hasn’t been resolved, you may want to make a formal complaint. This is known as raising a grievance. There are a number of reasons that you might want to raise a grievance with your employer, this can include things such as: 

  • the way you are being treated
  • discrimination or bullying at work because of your religion, race, age and so on
  • changes to your employment terms and conditions
  • roles and responsibilities that you’ve been asked to take on
