The word ‘grievance’ in an employment context tends to strike fear in the heart of most.

The fact is that the objective of the grievance process is a positive one, so staff should not feel they are being antagonistic if raising a grievance through the proper channels. Done properly, the grievance process will resolve issues whilst preserving relationships.

Sadly, staff often avoid raising a grievance. Things can then escalate forcing staff to raise a grievance at a point where they’ve reached the end of their tether. This can make it harder to sort out.
