Grievance Procedure

The Western Trust recognises that in the course of work, an employee may feel aggrieved and expects that normal day-to-day management should deal with the majority of work issues without the need to resort to formal procedures.

The Trust recognises the right of employees to seek a satisfactory resolution to their grievances. Employees should normally, in the first instance give their immediate manager the opportunity of resolving the matter, before progressing their grievance formally.

The purpose of this procedure is to provide an employee or group of employees with the opportunity to have their grievance considered quickly and effectively. When a grievance is raised, it should, where possible be resolved at the earliest opportunity and at the most appropriate level of management.
