This document can be used by an employee to appeal a disciplinary penalty made by an employer relating to the employee's performance at work. It acts as a signed letter to the employer confirming a formal appeal has been raised in relation to a disciplinary given in regard to the employee's performance.
The document can be tailored to describe the nature of the disciplinary and the reason or reasons why the decision is being appealed by the employee. The document also requests for the employer to confirm when and where the appeal can be discussed with the employee. The employee can also state if they wish to be accompanied to a meeting regarding the appeal by a colleague or relevant union representative.
How the document is to be used
The document should be signed and dated by the employee appealing against the disciplinary and provided to the appropriate individual within the employer's organisation who will be responsible for investigating the appeal, such as the HR Director or in any other way stipulated in the employer's internal Disciplinary Procedure. The employee appealing against the disciplinary may wish to keep a copy of the document in case the employer loses or claims never to have received the original.
