ICS Learn 5HR01 Task Two – Advisory Briefing Note


2.1 Organisational conflict and misbehaviour and informal and formal conflict

Misbehaviours and Conflicts

As evidenced in Personnel Today (2012), misbehaviours represent a significant scenario for organisation members violating core organisation and societal norms. For instance, employees sabotage their organisation practices or mislead clients from organisation to their personalised practices. Further, Debreli and Ishanova (2019) note misbehaviours as being defined as Type-S representing intentional benefit to people including theft cases in the organisation. Conversely, Type O represent benefits to the organisation by cheating administration while type D entail inflicting damages for properties and sabotaging the organisation operations.

As opposed to misbehaviours which are individual-centric, CIPD (2020a) highlight conflicts as including natural occurrence for most of organisation. This represent the phenomenon in an event an entity members come from different origins. For instance, employees can get into a conflict regarding achievement of particular identified goals. This is in a team or individual-based process. The rationale of this is noting on the differences amongst the employees on their relationships with surroundings. Prevalence of diverse experiences or thinking approach is appropriate but at some times lead to conflicts emergence. Hence, conflicts contrary to misbehaviours positively or negatively impact strategy used in behaviours, management and staff.

Informal and Formal Conflicts

Informal conflicts (Pillemer & Rothbard, 2018) as contributing to emerging the varying issues contributing to misunderstanding and employees conflicts. This is contrary to formal conflicts prevailing due to the employees cases of resistance for existing change. The strategy similarly include inefficient job function expectations, poor communication and toxicity in work area. A case example is in workplace where employees are accused of harassment or discrimination from the others. In this situation, indirect conflicts entail an address of the individual where complaints are made against.

Further, in line with ACAS (2021d), informal conflicts are identified as not integrated on systematic entities but set as a result of grievances and holistic expressive in its features. A case example is in informal conflicts where absenteeism issues, job changes, negligence and workplace accidents are prone. For the formal conflicts, it is appropriate for sourcing services from trade unions or the employees representatives.

2.2 Official and unofficial employee action

As evidenced in xPert HR (2021), official action entail a strategy for employees being members of a trade union with their actions authorised by a union. This is contrary to unofficial actions where these activities are unauthorised by their union.

The various features of official employees action are;

  • Employees in a position of assuming a collective practice to exert pressure on the other collective bargaining party
  • Employees protection from harm or disciplinary from their organisation
  • Employees progress with normal work functions promptly after off from work with full pay and statutory provisions provided to employees

In regard to unofficial employee action, their features are;

  • As evidenced in People Management (2018), employees lack any protection in an event of unofficial employee action
  • In most nations and specifically UK, employees lack authority to exercise an unofficial action
  • In most cases, an unofficial action could be well balloted, notified and hence viewed as a formal strategy
