If you have any concerns relating to your employment or how you have been treated and you are unsure whether you should raise a grievance, Gotelee Solicitors’ team of specialist employment Solicitors in Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe or Woodbridge, Suffolk would be happy to help you.
If you take early advice from us, we can tell you what options are open to you, and how to approach the problem to achieve the best outcome for you.
In many cases, the starting point will be for you to raise a grievance. Employers and employees have to comply with the ACAS Code of Practice, when dealing with grievances.
The ACAS Code sets out a four-step procedure for grievances:
Employment law also requires that your grievances are handled promptly and that the decision made in relation to them is reasonable.
If your employer does not follow a fair process or comes to an unreasonable and unfair conclusion, you may be able to make a claim. Our employment solicitors in Ipswich, Suffolk are vastly experienced in handling claims in the Employment Tribunals and making sure that you achieve a positive outcome. In some cases, if your employer did not fully comply with the ACAS Code of Practice, your compensation could be increased by up to 25%.
As with everything we do, our charges are very reasonable and tailored to the work that you would like us to do. In the vast majority of cases, we will agree a fixed fee for your work, so that you have comfort in knowing that you can safely budget, with no fear of receiving an unexpected bill from us.
