Despite your best efforts, you may still be confronted with someone raising a personal grievance with your business. We act to resolve issues like this quickly and fairly.


A personal grievance is when someone raises a complaint against their employer when an issue comes up that cannot be resolved informally. It can happen during employment or once the employee has left, so long as it has been raised within 90 days of the issue occuring.

Despite your best efforts to deal with your employees in good faith and follow a fair process where necessary, you may still be confronted with staff members raising personal grievances.

We know dealing with this can be stressful, time consuming and uncomfortable. In most cases, the best outcome for the business will be to resolve the grievance as soon as possible.

How we support you

We can assist you in settling and/or defending the matter. Our focus in resolving the dispute is to take the stress out of the situation and where possible, avoid time consuming and costly litigation.
