Solve can advise and practically support business owners on all aspects of handling grievances
Grievances are often very emotive for those involved and can end up being a series of long drawn conversations that frustratingly need to be concluded so that normal operations can resume.
Grievances can cover and stem from;
Employees’ perceptions of favouritism
Allegations that an employer is failing to follow their statutory obligations
Being overlooked for promotion
An employee’s issue with their manager
A breakdown in relationships
Changes introduced by the business in terms of technology or new management structures
Grievances can be just as challenging to manage as disciplinary actions. Often, as business owners, we work to build relationships with our employees and so when a grievance from one such employee lands on our desk, we can push it to the bottom of the priority list, fearful about its implications. However, grievances that are managed poorly, can often lead to disciplinary issues, poor morale and mistrust and be used against businesses in an employment tribunal.
Solve’s HR advisors have extensive experience in investigating and managing grievance issues and as we are not part of your business, can act independently and without prejudice to either party, resolving matters swiftly and making recommendations on changes to policy, practice or training that can help prevent a future claim.
We also can advise on a protected disclosure issue or more commonly referred to as ‘whistleblowing’. Where an employee believes they have a moral or health and safety concern that they wish their employer to take seriously and investigate.
