taratill :

Hello my name is Jenny and I am happy to help you today. Is she on a modern apprenticeship ? How long has she been there for?

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

Hi Jenny

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

She started in September and yes a modern apprenticeship

taratill :

Is it arranged through a college?

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

yes she attends the hair academy one day a week

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

so its through the government

taratill :

Do you know if the academy has a grievance procedure she could follow or is there a tutor she trusts who she can talk to about this?

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

she has spoken to the manager today and she was very understanding, I can have a look if they have a grievance procedure I would imagine they do

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

they intend to go and see the salon owner

taratill :

Hi the correct steps for her first are to follow the internal grievance/ complaints procedure. Hopefully that will resolve matters. If it does not then she should ask to be placed in an alternative establishment.

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

thanks

taratill :

No problem, I do hope that it sorts matters out. Please do come back to me if it does not resolve matters. All the best.

taratill :

Hello is there anything further you would like to know about this?

JACUSTOMER-xni2n8m6- :

not for now thanks
