Grievance Procedures

There is no legislation directly governing grievance procedures, and most grievances can be handled by the immediate supervisor without recourse to a formal procedure.  However, there are legal implications around the grievance handling process and the absence of a grievance facility could result in the employer incurring a liability for constructive dismissal.  The benefits of having a grievance  procedure is that it prevents an accumulation of minor issues and ensures that industrial action properly remains an avenue of last resort.
