No problem at all

Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for your patience. It is entirely possible to raise a grievance once you have resigned but your rights will depend on the following factors:
• If you are still employed by them and working your notice period then you continue being their employee until termination and your usual employment rights apply, including the right to raise a grievance and have it looked at formally by the employer
• If your employment has already terminated, for example if your notice has ended or you left without giving any notice, then you no longer have the legal right to raise a grievance. You may still do so and send your complaint to the employer but they are not legally required to look into it for you.So in either case you are able to submit a grievance but if your employment has terminated and the employer refuses to consider your complaint, then you would not be able to challenge that.I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
