Grievance letter to employer

If you have a grievance about something that happened at your workplace, you can use this letter to raise your grievance with your employer. This letter should be sent to your employer as soon as possible, avoiding any unreasonable delays. The letter allows you to state the details about your grievance and requests your employer to arrange a grievance meeting. You can also request your employer to allow you to be accompanied, if you want this. This document cannot be used to raise a grievance about complaints regarding redundancy dismissals, the non-renewal of fixed-term contracts upon expiry or where the grievance is made by a third party on your behalf (such as a trade union representative). It is suitable for use by employees working in England, Wales and Scotland.
