Remember, you can make more than one claim for the same events. In fact, it’s very common in tribunal cases to bring multiple related claims. Once you finish this claim just add another.

When to use a Grievance Appeal letter template

If you’re unhappy with the outcome of your grievance at work, you can appeal the decision. This template guides you step-by-step through writing a Grievance Appeal letter to your employer. You can use this to cover off your employer’s internal grievance process, and as a precursor to making a claim to the Tribunal.

Examples of when to use a Grievance Appeal letter template

You should use a Grievance Appeal letter if you’re unhappy with the outcome of your grievance. For example:


Greg has raised a grievance but his complaint was not upheld. He does not believe the grievance has been properly investigated.

He therefore sends a Grievance Appeal letter to his employer.


Aaliyah has raised a grievance but her complaint was only partially upheld.

She feels that the grievance process was not impartial because the person hearing the grievance was involved in the events she is complaining about.

She therefore sends a Grievance Appeal letter to her employer.


How to appeal against a grievance outcome using a letter template

Once you have finished writing a grievance appeal letter using a template, you should:

  1. send the Grievance Appeal Letter to your employer
  2. wait for your employer to come back to you
  3. take a note of any deadlines your employer has set under their grievance procedure (if this exists)
  4. diarise to chase your employer if they don’t come back to you on time.

Save time, reduce stress and ensure your claim has the best chance of success

What our customers say about us

Valla are excellent

I genuinely believe they helped guide me to the best possible outcome for my specific circumstances. They are a choir of angels; I wouldn't have been able to consider going through the processes involved with my experience without their support.


If I didn’t get help from Valla, I couldn’t go forward with the case.

The confidence they gave me is beyond description.


Excellent low-cost employment tribunal guidance

I have just won my employment tribunal case for unfair dismissal, and I'm not sure if I would have been able to do it without Valla! Katie and Danae were absolutely brilliant in helping me prepare for the tribunal, prepare certain documents, and help me to feel confident in my case! I would highly recommend Valla to anyone who is representing themselves in an employment tribunal case! 10/10 for me!


Why use Valla?

A law firm can cost anywhere from an initial consultation fee of £200 to £35,000+ plus VAT for Tribunal representation.

Valla offers users low-cost alternatives to pricey law firms. We can help guide you through the process and generate legal documents for your use.

Lawyers can be expensive. But access to justice doesn’t have to be.
