Causes/ Sources of Employee Grievances

Employee Grievances 

Employee grievances are concerns, complaints, or dissatisfactions about one’s employment, working conditions, or treatment at work. An employee may file a grievance relating to salary, work environment, workload, performance evaluation, disciplinary action, harassment at work, or discrimination in any other way that affects their employment.

A crucial aspect of human resource management is resolving employee grievances, because it helps employers address employees’ concerns in a timely and effective manner, prevent potential legal liabilities and disputes, and boost employee engagement and productivity.

A positive workplace culture can also be fostered through effective grievance management. It is essential for organizations to have a grievance handling procedure that outlines the steps to take when an employee raises a grievance in order to handle employee grievances effectively.
