Making Sense of Employment Law
Conflict at work has many causes and can take many forms, for example:
- you and a colleague don’t get on
- a serious complaint against your manager
- rivalry between two teams or departments
- general lack of trust and co-operation between employees and management
If you are unhappy about any aspect of your employment, you should talk to someone. Who that person is will depend on your organisation. In the first instance, it may be possible to resolve the matter by speaking to someone on an informal basis. Very often, a quiet word is all that’s needed. Alternatively, your employer should have a grievance procedure for more serious, difficult or awkward matters.
Grievances should be handled sensitively and in confidence. Raising a grievance enables you to let your employer know that there is a problem and allows them an opportunity to address it.
