Grievances are concerns, problems or complaints raised by an employee with management. Anybody may at some time have problems or concerns with their working conditions or relationships with colleagues that they wish to raise. A fair and effective resolution of staff concerns is beneficial to harmonious working, job satisfaction, productivity and ultimately to the effective education of our pupils.
Grievances can be raised for a number of reasons, including but not limited to:
- Disagreements between line managers and staff
- Issues between members of staff
- Bullying and Harassment
Employers should adopt a Complaints & Grievance Procedure making sure all employees are aware of it.
