One of the purposes of employment related
legislation is to make it as easy as possible for Employees
to bring Personal Grievance claims or disputes alleging
that they have been unfairly treated in some way. Accordingly
almost all Employers, no matter how fair and reasonable
they are, face this situation at least once.
