Employees need to know they have both the right and the opportunity to raise concerns about matters affecting them in their employment, including seeking review.
They also need to know they will not attract criticism, when raising matters if they:
- are not frivolous or vexatious
- behave professionally.
Behaving professionally includes raising concerns in a respectful, courteous, constructive and factual manner and co-operating with review processes.
It does not include unreasonably labelling colleagues' behaviour as unethical or attributing unethical or dishonest motives to colleagues and managers.
