Written Complaints of Discrimination or Corporate Misconduct

Written complaints of discrimination or corporate misconduct can have great power. If you are going to complain to your employer about something illegal such as sex or race discrimination, safety violations or other illegal conduct, you should make your COMPLAINT IN WRITING because the writing gives evidence that helps protect you from any subsequent retaliation by your employer. You may want to see an employment lawyer to help you behind the scenes draft your written complaint to your employer to set up your claim properly.

Employees are understandably afraid when they make these kinds of complaints, and they often understate them or do not put them in writing. Employees often feel it is safer to complain about ·unfair treatment" rather than sex or race discrimination. Do not make this mistake. Putting these complaints in writing in a straightforward non-inflammatory way provides the employee with major PROTECTION.

This is true because:

  1. Employees are usually required to use internal grievance procedures to complain about sexual harassment and discrimination practices.
  2. Employers regard written complaints more seriously than verbal complaints because there is a permanent record. Without the writ en evidence of a complaint, employers are free to argue that they never received a complaint and therefore are not responsible.
  3. Employers worry about being· set up" for a lawsuit when they receive a well-written discrimination complaint.
  4. Employers are afraid to retaliate against an employee after receiving a written discrimination complaint because they are afraid of a lawsuit.
