Why you should use a professionally written disciplinary appeal letter

A disciplinary appeal letter is useful if you’ve faced disciplinary action at work and you want to appeal the decision.

It’s important to be precise about why you want your employer to review their decision. A good disciplinary appeal letter will make it clear why you think the outcome was unjust.

It’s also useful to formalise your disagreement at this stage in case you want to make a claim at Tribunal later.

Examples of when to use a disciplinary appeal letter

There are a few scenarios where a disciplinary appeal letter is useful in solving your employment issues. Here are some examples:


Josephine has been dismissed but feels that this was too harsh a penalty for what she has done.

She therefore sends a disciplinary appeal letter to her employer.


Marta has been issued with a final written warning.

However, at the meeting where she was issued with the warning, she was not informed of the allegations against her or given any time to prepare.

She therefore sends a disciplinary appeal letter to her employer.
