Grievance Procedures

The University promotes an environment where all colleagues are able to perform at their best and feel supported to do so. We recognise that differences and disagreements do arise from time to time and the ability to discuss issues openly and respectfully is essential to the well-being of our people and the success of the University.

Wherever possible the informal resolution of differences is preferable but a formal process is sometimes required to enable all parties to work together to find a mutually acceptable resolution. The formal policy and procedure hence exists to support colleagues in both raising and responding to grievances and encourages them to focus on perceived issues and behaviours and not the person or people concerned.
