Invite an employee to attend a grievance appeal hearing

Key points

  • If an employee appeals the outcome of a grievance, the employer should invite him or her to attend a grievance appeal hearing.
  • The invitation should explain that the appeal hearing will explore the basis on which the employee believes that the decision on his or her grievance was wrong.
  • The invitation should inform the employee that he or she has the right to be accompanied at the appeal hearing by a colleague or trade union representative.
