Employers – be aware of the importance of actioning grievance resolutions quickly

Where a grievance raised by an employee is upheld or upheld in part it is possible some form of resolution will be required.

A recent ruling by the Employment Tribunal highlighted that an employer’s failure to keep to the terms of a grievance outcome decision could amount to a “last straw” event thereby entitling the employee to resign and claim constructive dismissal.

Employers must ensure that any grievance outcome, which included some form of resolution, is actioned quickly and most importantly by any specific date stated in the grievance outcome decision letter.
