Grievance Appeal Letter

This document can be used to issue an appeal against a decision made by an employer relating to an employee's grievance at work. It acts as a signed letter confirming a formal appeal has been raised in relation to a decision made on the employee's grievance, and is provided by the employee who is raising the appeal to the employer.

The document can be tailored to describe:

  • the nature of the grievance;
  • the decision of the Employer that is being appealed; and
  • the reason or reasons for why the decision is being appealed by the employee.

The document also requests that the employer 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. Usually, an appeal should be submitted within the general terms, stipulated by the Employer's Grievance Procedure.

How the document is to be used

The document should be signed and dated by the employee raising the grievance appeal and provided to the appropriate individual within the employee's organisation who will be responsible for investigating the appeal, such as the HR Director. The person raising the grievance appeal may wish to keep a copy of the document in case the employer loses or claims never to have received the original.

Any applicable law

There is no formal law surrounding the grievance process. However the issues detailed in the grievance may contravene various acts in employment law, such as the Employment Rights Act 1996 or the Equality Act 2010. In all cases, employees have a right to appeal against a grievance decision as per the ACAS Code of Practice (for England, Scotland and Wales) and the Labour Relations Agency Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures (for Northern Ireland).
