Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Does she believe this is due to her race/; sex? Has she raised a grievance about this?
not yet. I could add that she has improved her book of business, beaten her targets for two years,a nd negotiates at a very senior level.
If she raises a grievance, it is a bit of a nuclear option in the City, we feel...
she does feel it is due to her sex and race a little, yes
Ok without raising a grievance it is hard to see how she can proceed unfortunately as it is not really possible to raise a claim in the Employment Tribunal without first raising an internal complaint about her treatment.
If she does raise a grievance and is terminated then it would amount to victimisation.
I would therefore suggest that a grievance is, in the first instance, the most appropriate route of action for her.
any advice about what to put in the grievance? mention sex/race, or ask for an informal review? ask ofr pay rates of others? policy on recruitment?
Hi it might be best to ask for an informal review first but don't be afraid of raising a grievance and alleging discrimination if that does not achieve the outcome she wants.
ok, thanks Jenny
The should be able to justify the difference of pay on non - gender/ race grounds, if they cannot it is appropriate to raise a complaint.
last question - would you recommend asking for the internal policies they may have, and if so which ones?
Yes, internal grievance and recruitement policies would be useful.
thank you Jenny
