Dear [Employee's Name],

RE: Grievance Procedure at [Company Name]

We value the well-being and satisfaction of our employees at [Company Name]. As part of our commitment to maintaining a fair and supportive work environment, we have established a Grievance Procedure to address any concerns or grievances you may have.

Informal Resolution:

  • If you have a concern or grievance, we encourage you to first attempt an informal resolution by discussing the matter with your immediate supervisor or manager. They will make every effort to address the issue promptly and find a mutually agreeable solution.
  • If you are uncomfortable discussing the matter with your supervisor or if they are directly involved in the concern, you may approach the next level of management, the Human Resources department, or any designated individual responsible for handling grievances within the company.

Formal Grievance:

  • If the informal resolution does not resolve the matter to your satisfaction, or if you are unable to discuss the concern with the individuals mentioned above, you may initiate a formal grievance by submitting a written complaint to the Human Resources department.
  • Your written complaint should clearly outline the nature of the grievance, including specific incidents, dates, and individuals involved. You should also provide any supporting documentation or evidence that may be relevant to the complaint.
  • The Human Resources department will conduct a thorough investigation into the grievance, ensuring confidentiality and impartiality throughout the process.
  • You will be provided with a reasonable opportunity to present your case and provide any additional information or witnesses that may support your complaint.
  • Upon completion of the investigation, a decision will be communicated to you in writing, outlining the findings and any actions that will be taken to address the grievance.

Appeal Process:

  • If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the formal grievance procedure, you have the right to appeal the decision. To initiate an appeal, you must submit a written request to the Human Resources department within [number of days] of receiving the decision.
  • The appeal will be reviewed by a designated individual or committee, independent of the original investigation. They will assess the grievance, consider any new evidence or information presented, and provide a final decision.
  • The decision made at the appeal stage will be considered final and binding, and no further avenues for appeal will be available within the company.


  • All grievances will be treated with the utmost confidentiality to the extent possible while conducting a thorough investigation and addressing the concerns raised.
  • It is important to note that confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in cases where disclosure is necessary to conduct a fair investigation or when required by law.

We are committed to ensuring that all grievances are handled promptly, fairly, and impartially. If you have any questions or require further clarification regarding the Grievance Procedure, please contact the Human Resources department at [HR Contact Details].

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in following this Grievance Procedure to address any concerns or grievances that may arise during your employment at [Company Name].
