Should I Raise a Workplace Grievance?

You should raise a workplace grievance if there’s a particularly serious issue you’re concerned about while at work. Typical reasons to raise a grievance with your employer include:

  • Being asked to take responsibility for work outside your employment contract;
  • The pay you receive, or other terms and conditions related to your employment contract;
  • Workplace discrimination, whether it’s direct and concerns your age, gender, religious beliefs or other characteristics, or indirect where, for example, you’re unable to commit to a change in policy due to personal characteristics or circumstances.

Paying for a solicitor concerning workplace grievances and complaints

It’s typical for each party to pay legal fees during an employment tribunal, irrespective of who has won or lost. Although cost orders are rare, there can be exceptions.

If you are particularly concerned, use our no-obligation, free enquiry form so we can discuss the legal fees surrounding your workplace grievance and complaints with you – there may be ways we can guide you.

For example, your home insurance may already have legal costs included. If not, we may be prepared to take claims on a “no-win-no-fee” basis.
