How to appeal

Your workplace discipline and grievance policy should tell you how to appeal. If not, you should raise your appeal in writing to your employer.

Write in a letter or email:
  • why you think your outcome was wrong or unfair (for example, if you felt the person investigating your case did not get enough evidence)
  • what you would like to happen next (for example, you could ask if your employer can carry out another investigation or look at the new evidence you have found)

**Remember to include your details in the relevant (Bracket) areas to personalise it**  *Please note this letter is available in a choice of downloadable formats to include Microsoft Doc, ODT or PDF below the letter.
