What is an Employee Complaint Form?

Even in the best of workplaces, issues and complaints will likely arise from time to time - small and large businesses alike find it essential to have grievance procedures in place. An Employee Complaint Form is a way for employees to make a written complaint to their employer. A grievance may be over working conditions, management, or policy violations in the workplace. 
The Employee Complaint Form can help quickly and fairly address problems as they may arise. Maybe a company policy was violated. You need to include critical information - like the date, who was involved, and what you want done to fix it. Having a formal process in place helps both the employees and the business. Having an Employee Complaint Form readily available can helps ensure a fair, safe work environment, which is advantageous both for the employees and the employer. The Employee Complaint Form may be sent in to a human resources department or to a supervisor or manager at the company.

When to use an Employee Complaint Form:

  • You're an employee who wants to complain about a work issue.
  • You own a small business and want to give your workers a formal way to complain.
  • You're in HR and need documents readily available.
