If you feel you have been treated unfairly at work, raising a grievance is often the best way to highlight your concerns.
A grievance is any problem that you may have with your employer and can relate to a variety of matters, including working conditions, pay, terms and a failure of process.

If your employer does not follow a fair process or comes to an unreasonable conclusion, you may be able to make a claim. In some cases, if your employer failed to fully comply with the ACAS Code of Practice, your compensation could be increased by up to 25%.
