Grievance hearings - legal advice

Nobody wants problems at work but unfortunately, they can and do happen. You might feel that you’ve been treated unfairly. Maybe you feel that you’ve been bullied by a manager or a co-worker. Or it could be that your employer is making your life difficult for some other reason that just doesn’t seem right to you. 

When problems like this arise at work, our employment law solicitors can help you move forward. We're here to get things sorted out quickly - so you can get on with your job and put it behind you. It’s usually best to try to sort things out informally, initially. You're probably best talking to your boss – or if they’re the cause of the problem, another manager that you trust. You’ll probably find that your company has a procedure for dealing with grievances. Often you can come to an amicable solution by talking through your differences with the people involved.

You have options

If you’ve tried to sort it out yourself and you feel like you’re getting nowhere, you may feel like you’ve no option but to pursue a formal grievance. Fortunately, we’re here to help and support you.

How we can help you

Our specialist employment solicitors are experts when it comes to dealing with grievances at work. We’ve got the experience and the knowledge to be able to support and advise you. We can advise on a range of things you can do, from drafting your grievance to conducting your grievance hearing and what points you need to get across. We hope you won’t need to take your employer to a tribunal, but if your grievance can’t be resolved any other way, we can help with that too.
