The complainant commenced employment with the Respondent company in 2012. In 2014 he submitted a grievance to management regarding issues he was having with his line manager. He was unhappy with the outcome of the investigation but did not pursue it further at that time. Further issues followed in relation to his beard, which involved the manager sending him home as it was not considered to be neat and tidy and in line with company policy.
