HR Business Breakfast - Handling workplace grievances effectively

Starts: September 11, 2019 08:00
End: September 11, 2019 09:30

Would you know how to correctly handle a grievance if an employee came to you with a concern or complaint regarding their pay, a colleague, the office or perhaps their day-to-day duties?

Desk Discussing Discussion 1311518

As an employer, you should have a clear and effective Grievance Policy that informs staff what procedure should be followed. This includes how to resolve any complaints informally and a legally compliant process for dealing with more serious grievances.

Risks of failing to comply with grievance procedures

A failure to comply with your grievance procedure could have financial consequences – for you or your staff – in the Employment Tribunal.  Staff don’t always use the word ‘grievance’ when making a complaint, therefore it is important you understand when you need to deal with something as a formal grievance.  

In partnership with Red Recruitment we invite you to join us for informal networking over breakfast followed by a presentation covering: Handling workplace grievances effectively.

Our speakers, David Baynton, Partner & Head of Employment Law and Jessica Richards, Trainee Solicitor, will cover:

  • Practical guidance on handling workplace grievances; 
  • Common mistakes employers make;   
  • Problem areas that can arise.

This event is essential for HR professionals and owner-managers of SME businesses looking to further their knowledge in this complex area of employment law. You're welcome to ask questions, share experiences and make comments for discussion.
