A Disciplinary Appeal Letter is a formal document submitted by an employee to their employer to challenge a disciplinary decision that has been made against them. It serves as a means for an employee to express their disagreement with the disciplinary action taken against them and to request a reconsideration of the decision. This type of letter outlines the employee's reasons for believing the disciplinary action was unjust or inappropriate, and it presents arguments or evidence to support their appeal.

This letter is used when an employee gets in trouble at work and the employee feels they do not deserve the disciplinary action the employer has made against them. Disciplinary actions are any actions the employer takes to punish an employee for the employee's poor performance, misconduct, or other unacceptable conduct at work.

In many cases, the employer usually conducts a thorough investigation before taking disciplinary action against the employee. This disciplinary action can stem from demotion, suspension, or even dismissal.

An employee can send this document after receiving a disciplinary decision or action in the form of a suspension, dismission, or any other action from their employer that they disagree with or believe is unfair.


How to use this document

Many organizations have a grievance procedure and procedure for disciplinary appeals in the Employee Handbook, Code of Conduct, or other policy document, and the employee should follow the requirements for disciplinary appeal (if any).

This document requires basic information such as the name of the employee and the employer, the details of the disciplinary action, the incident leading up to disciplinary action, and the resolution request (or desired outcome). After completing the document, the document should be printed, and the employee should sign the document.

The employee should then send the document along with an incident report, pictures, performance appraisal forms, or other documents that may support their appeal to the employer's human resources officer or another person in the employer's disciplinary committee.

Alternatively, after signing the document, the employee can send the document via email to the human resources personnel or person responsible for handling the employee's disciplinary appeals. After this, the employee should keep a copy of this document for their record.

Please note that this document does not require notarization.
