    Preventing and resolving employee grievances

    For many managers, dealing with employee complaints can be daunting and the temptation to avoid potentially difficult conversations is understandable, but ignoring problems won’t make them go away.

    The good news is not all grievances need to be dealt with formally, early intervention and effective resolution can ensure issues are solved before they escalate, building a healthier, more productive workplace.

    • Spot issues before they escalate: Learn to recognise the tell-tale signs that a grumble might be at risk of becoming a bigger problem
    • Navigate grievances with confidence: We’ll walk you through the entire process, from initial conversation to resolution, ensuring fair and compliant handling every step of the way
    • Minimise risk and maximise trust: Understand the potential discrimination risks and avoid costly tribunal uplifts due to mishandled grievances

    Walk away with:

    • Practical tools and strategies for managing grievances effectively
    • Confidence and skills to address issues head-on
    • Knowledge of the ACAS Code of Practice and Grievance in the Workplace to ensure compliance and a fair process
