A grievance case occurs when an employee believes there is a problem and is complaining about the workplace, someone in the workplace or the work itself. The most common grievances include pay and benefits, a belief that they are being bullied or treated unfairly, unhappiness with their working conditions or workload. Commonly there are relationship issues at the heart of a grievance.
A disciplinary, on the other hand, occurs when the organisation seeks to address an employee’s behaviour or performance. Amongst the most common reasons are their behaviour at work, under performing, or absence from work.
