Is It Worth Raising a Grievance at Work?

Raising a grievance at work is usually in your best interest if you feel unfairly treated or discriminated against. Starting with an informal discussion can be effective. Your employer might listen and take steps to improve the situation.

Understanding Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures

If you’re facing disciplinary proceedings or planning to file a grievance, your employer must follow its procedures. You can find details of these procedures in your Company Handbook, HR manual, Personnel manual, or your employment contract. It’s crucial to familiarize yourself with these procedures to ensure your rights are protected.
