When to make a complaint to your employer and how to make an accident at work claim
There are certain situations where you really should just get on with things and try not to make too big a deal out of a situation. Although it can be tempting to take every grievance to your employer in order to let them sort it out, you need to remember that you are an adult and have been hired as a professional person. You should try to sort out your own problems for the most part and then get your employer involved only when it is really necessary. Some of the times when you should be considering talking to your employer, rather than handling the situation yourself include:
- If you cannot resolve a dispute on your own. As an adult you should be trying to resolve disputes with other employees on your own first and setting up meetings to resolve these problems without having to get management involved. If this doesn’t work, though, then it may be necessary to take the issue higher.
- For pay issues. If you are not being paid, are not being paid on time or feel that there is something wrong with your wages, you should take this complaint to management so that it can be sorted out sooner rather than later. It is unlikely that it will only be affecting you, so you can get your colleagues to back you up.
- If you are injured. If you are injured and feel that it is the fault of the company, then making a complaint is the first step to take, to see if action can be taken. It is your employer’s duty to ensure that all employees are safe in their job.
- If someone is treating you badly. This is not the same as having a dispute, as it will involve you being treated badly for no real reason. Bullying must be tackled as soon as possible.
