Grievances

If an employee raises a grievance, it requires urgent and appropriate action.

Failure to deal with a grievance properly or appropriately can create additional exposure to your organisation, especially if it contains allegations of discrimination.

We are able to work with you to understand the nature of the allegations being raised and to seek clarification on those in an appropriate way should that be necessary.

Our advice will guide you through the process of handling and dealing with the grievance, acknowledging that some grievances can be particularly sensitive and could often involve senior members of your organisation.

We are able to assist in reviewing evidence and reaching appropriate and reasonable conclusions to the grievance, as well as handling any subsequent appeals that may be raised by the employee if he/she is unhappy with the outcome. By supporting clients in this way we are able to significantly reduce the risk of future employment claims.

Alternatively, a grievance may lead to you and the employee deciding that a parting of the ways is in all parties best interests.  When this happens the employment is often terminated using a Settlement Agreement.  Our experienced employment lawyers can prepare a suitable agreement and provide the advice you will require should this happen.

Chancellor announces changes to the Job Support Scheme

The Chancellor has today announced that the Government contribution to employers’ wage costs under the Job Support Scheme (JSS) will be increased. Employers will be expected to pay 5% of the cost of unworked hours instead of the 33% originally announced.

Coronavirus Update - CJRS Bonus - Are you eligible?

Back in the summer the Chancellor announced that employers could receive a one-off payment of £1,000 for every employee who had previously been furloughed under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme  provided they remained continuously employed to the end of January 2021.  Businesses will be able to claim the Job Retention Bonus from 15 February 2021 and the Government has stated that further guidance will be provided by the end of January 2021.

Coronavirus Update - Jobs Support Scheme announced

With new government guidance on Covid coming into force today and the current furlough scheme coming to an end next month, as expected, the Chancellor has today announced a new scheme to help businesses.
