Definition: Employee Grievance
Employee grievance refers to the dissatisfaction of an employee with what he expects from the company and its management. A company has to provide an employee with a safe working environment, realistic job preview, adequate compensation, respect etc.
However, when there is a gap between what the employee expects and what he receives, it leads to grievances.
Employee grievances may or may not be justified. However, they need to be tackled adequately because they not only lower the motivation and performance of the employee but also affects the work environment. Employee grievances if left unchecked can lead to large disputes within the company. Any company must have a proper channel for employee grievance redressal.
