I am looking for some advice about a greivance that i am thinking of raising with my manger. I have a part time job that i work 1 day a week. Last week i was due into work on thursday but unfortunatly i was unable to attend due to my partner being really ill and was unable to look after ar 5yr and 3mnt old boys.I phoned my employer the day before i was due in to inform them of the situation and i would not be able to attend work. I go into work today and have a return to work interview on which they pull my sick record for the whole year which is 0 days and tell me they wont pay me for that day because it is down to the manager's descretion, even though they have a emergency carer leave
Now do i raise a greivance to ask what are his reasons are for not paying me
or do i leave it and let it go
If i go for the greivance route could somebody give pointers for a good letter please.
