Grievance

This is a way of formally raising a concern or problem with your employer. Most employers have a grievance process that should be followed. The employment tribunal may reduce an award if you do not attempt the grievance procedure first.

Hearing

This is the final part of an employment claim. It is where the judge and other members of the tribunal panel decide whether they agree or not in your case. They will then decide the best solution.
