Being unhappy at work can be challenging, increasing your worry and stress. It can be even more difficult if you’re looking to raise a grievance as a result. Our legal advice and support is geared towards making sure your workplace disputes get resolved to your satisfaction and as quickly as possible.


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:


Paying for a solicitor concerning workplace grievance 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.
