Help raising a grievance
The first step you will usually need to take if you are having a problem at work is to raise it with your line manager or HR department. Ask for a meeting, have a chat with them about your problem, and hopefully it can be resolved quickly.
If not, the next step is usually to look at your employer’s formal grievance procedure. If your employer doesn’t have one, take a look at the Acas Code of Conduct on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures which you can download at www.acas.org.uk/acas-code-of-practice-on-disciplinary-and-grievance-procedures.
We offer a fixed-fee service for help in raising a grievance.
Our fixed-fee for this service is £950 plus VAT at 20% (£1,140 including VAT).
We would generally recommend that you take legal advice on putting together your grievance as it will be important if you go on to bring a claim. If funding is an issue for you, you could ask your union for help with this, or speak to an adviser at your local Citizens Advice.
However, if you are confident to raise a grievance yourself but are just unsure about the format, you can download a free letter template below.
