Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. I'm mobile right now so I can't look at this immediately but I can help at about 10pm tonight if thats helpful?
Many thanks for your patience. Do you know of any policy that says you cannot raise a grievance at this stage? Has the employer said why you cannot raise a grievance now?
Yes I have seen our previous correspondence. If the employer is trying to rely on rules that state you cannot raise a grievance at this stage, then you need to ask them to specifically refer you to the policy that says this. Generally you are able to raise a grievance at any stage, although sometimes the employer could have a set of policies or rules that state certain complaints should be resolved informally at first or setting out steps that should be followed before a grievance is raised. But a total ban on raising a grievance is unlikely to be fair and will remove your basic rights as an employee so be pushy and ask them to be shown the specific policy that says this is not possible.
dismissing you fairly for this could be difficult considering they are only suggesting this 4 years too late
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this?
Could you please reply/
