This document is a Sexual Harassment Complaint Letter. This letter should be used by an employee to make a formal complaint where they are being sexually harassed by another employee. This letter can be used to create a record in the event that it is later needed, which is likely to occur.

Sexual Harassment will occur when any conduct of a sexual nature either violates someone's dignity or creates an intimidating, humiliating or uncomfortable work environment. Conduct of a sexual nature encompasses unwelcome sexual advances such as unsolicited touching, showing inappropriate pictures, standing too close to someone etc.

Sexual Harassment is likely to occur in the workplace. As such, this letter provides a template with which an employee can formally report a sexual harassment matter to their employer. It calls on the employer to consult its sexual harassment policy if it has one, as well as promptly investigate and correct the situation.

The gravity of a sexual harassment incident requires having a strong written record of all events which will include all relevant communications between the employer and employee. This letter will help form part of the employee's case in the event that a legal claim is pursued on this matter.

 

How to use this document

This letter will guide the user through inputting relevant details in a letter report to the employer.

The template provides information such as the name and address of parties, name and details of any witnesses, and descriptive incidents of harassment that may have occurred.

The employee filling out this template should try to be as detailed as possible when describing the sexual harassment events. A good description will help the employer understand the seriousness of the act being complained of.

When this letter has been filled out, it should be printed and signed by the employee. A copy of the letter should be kept by the employee for personal records, and another copy should be sent to the employer.

Under UK law, a person alleging sexual harassment has 3 months within the act of harassment to bring a legal claim. It is therefore imperative to start this process early in case it escalates to the point of a legal claim against the employer or the harasser.

 

Applicable Law

Equality Act 2010
