Types of grievances in the workplace
Because grievances can be about anything related to work, there’s no exhaustive list of what they cover. However, the types of grievance can be loosely grouped into the following categories:
- Terms and conditions of employment
- Health and safety
- Work relations
- Bullying and harassment
- New working practices
- Working environment
- Organisational change
We recommend covering potential types of grievance in your grievance policy.
