Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Can you provide me with some further information in relation to the bullying?
I have received this and I am currently reviewing the infromation provided.
Has the attached grievance been sent to the employer or is this just a draft?
Thank you, ***** ***** encourage you to raise your grievance as soon as possible, it appears that the company should be made aware of this and they should thoroughly investigate this.
I would raise this with HR in the first instance as they will likely carry out the investigation.
I understand your concerns when raising a grievance however if you do not explore this option then it is unlikely that the matter will be resolved.
You have already drafted your grievance, and it is highly unlikely that the employer will allow a third party solicitor to attend the grievance meeting with you. However if they did I could provide a quote for my time.
You will only need a solicitor if you plan to pursue an employment claim to the tribunal or you request assistance in drafting a letter of appeal etc, costs would be dependent on the instructions.
At a grievance meeting you will be given the opportunity to be accompanied by either a colleague or a union representative.
If you are not a member of a union, then you will have to a take a colleague this does not need to be a amanger this can be someone you work alongisde.
If you do not raise the grievance, then the matter cannot be investigated and a resolution will not be found. If you do not wish to raise the grievance to HR by all means send this to a senior manager.
If you wish to resign that would be your decision, however if you wished to pursue a constructive dismissal claim then it is unlikely you would suceed without first raising a grievance.
You should raise a grievance due to the numerous issues you have raised, this is not a complaint but a concern that you have raised.
I understand but in the grievance process the employer is obliged to investigate the matter and collect evidence. If you wish to propose a settlement you could include this at the bottom of your grievance.
This is what you should be included in the grievance.
Glad to be off assistance I wish you all the best.
