What is Employee Grievance?
Employee Grievance is an injustice or other feeling dissatisfaction expressed, either orally or in writing, regarding his job, co-workers, supervisors, or company procedures or policies. Grievances are presented to either supervisors or the company’s personnel or human resources department.
Unresolved grievances can become collective bargaining disputes and also can result in lower productivity, absenteeism, lower morale, frustration and dissatisfaction. Employee grievances can result from an unsafe workplace, unrealistic production quotas, policy and procedure violations and uneven application of policies regarding promotions, transfers and overtime.
