Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What is the grievance about?
Thank you. How long have you worked there for?
Thank you very much for clarifying. If you believe there is a genuine risk of bias, you can indeed ask for someone else to look into the grievance and investigate it. There are no hard and fast rules about this though – people with a connection to the complaint and still investigate it as long as they act in a fair and transparent manner. So the first thing you need to do is raise your concerns and see if it is possible to have someone else take this on. If the request is rejected by the employer, you should carefully monitor the investigation and its outcome to look for signs of potential bias or unfairness and challenge them accordingly once they potentially become evident.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be glad to help. All the best
