The Employee's Grievance Letter is a letter for employees to make a formal complaint to their employer about something that happened at work. It covers several situations that may lead to a complaint, including discrimination, bullying, health and safety concerns, breach of contract, harassment at the workplace, etc.
The employee must set out full details about the complaint to give the employer adequate information to carry out a thorough investigation of the matter. This document outlines the names and addresses of the employer and employee, the position of the employee, and the details of the complaint.
