There are formal steps to follow to raise a Personal Grievance
Prior to formally raising a Personal Grievance you must first bring the issue to the attention of your employer within 90 days. If an employer is not aware of an issue it’s difficult to hold them accountable. It is best to raise the issue in writing, via email or a letter and you should give your Employer a reasonable amount of time to respond (you can ask for a response within 3 days for example). If you’re not satisfied with their response, you can request your employer attends a mediation with you. If that fails, you can take your grievance to the Employment Relations Authority.
