An employer’s guide to personal grievance and unjustified dismissal claims

A strong employment relationship is one where both an employer and employee feel respected and understand their roles. The sad reality is that there are times where an employment relationship could break down, leading to significant issues and potential legal action.

It’s important that employers are aware of how the personal grievance process works. While ideally their employment relationships should be healthy and happy, they may come up against a claim at some point. It’s also crucial that employers are aware of specific actions that could open them up to a personal grievance, so they know to avoid them.
