  • Dispute

    A disagreement between two or more people in the workplace.

    Workplace disputes can negatively impact productivity and tarnish the working relationship between employees, their colleagues and the employer. These events can occur due to a work-related matter (e.g. breach of employment agreement, treatment of employees) or a personal conflict of interest.

    When managing a dispute, it is important to respect the rights of all employees and follow the correct internal procedure to resolve the matter quickly. If the dispute cannot be resolved internally, the employee may request mediation through the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
