Dear Mr. Doe,

I am writing to tell you that I wish to raise a grievance with regards to my dismissal on 30 January 2009.

This action is being as a result of the terms under which my contract was agreed and signed under on the 20 December 2005.

Under the terms of my contract, three written warnings must be issued before a dismissal can be put into place. In my case this was not the course of action.

I had been a loyal employee of ABCD Company for 3 years and in that time no complaints, formal or informal, had been made about my work before the date of my dismissal. The reasons given for my dismissal were unclear and reasoned around a discrepancy, which had in my opinion and that of my colleagues not occurred.

I am entitled to a hearing to discuss this matter; also I am entitled, if I wish, to be accompanied by another work colleague or my trade union representative.

Please reply within 28 days of the date of this letter.

Yours sincerely,
