Letter to raise a grievance at work

If you are an employee and you want to make a formal complaint about something which has happened at work, you should raise a grievance.

The first step in doing so is to write a letter to your employer. The letter should set out what your complaint is with enough detail for your employer to be able to investigate it properly. Also include any details of what you've done to sort out the problem already.

Use our letter generator to set out the details of your grievance.
