Modified grievance procedures

Where an employee has left employment but wishes to raise a grievance then the modified ‘letter only’ procedure can be adopted.

A recent case (City of Bradford v Pratt), places a greater onus on the employee, particularly if it is the employee who has requested the modified procedure.

There is a requirement that the employee must set out in writing the grievance and the basis for it. This means that it is not acceptable to simply state the grievance as, say, an equal pay disparity, without also giving the back up evidence to support it by way of the category of comparator and the amount of pay difference.

In the standard procedure, only the nature of the grievance needs to be disclosed, the remainder can be supplied later.
