Grievances are concerns, problems or complaints that are work-related. They may relate to problems or concerns about a staff members work, working conditions or relationships with colleagues. They may relate to action which has already been taken or which is contemplated in relation to a member of staff, or the actions of colleagues.

Some examples of issues that may result in a grievance are as follows:

  • Terms and conditions of employment (or their perceived unfair or inconsistent application)
  • Health and safety
  • Work relations
  • New working practices
  • Working environment
  • Equal opportunities
  • Organisational change

On Tuesday 1 October 2019, the Trust implemented an updated grievance and disputes procedure. The purpose of the procedure is to ensure all staff understand how to raise a grievance and to provide a process for staff and managers to resolve grievances in line with best practice and employment legislation.
