The purpose of a complaint letter is to tell the authorities that you have a problem or are not satisfied with some service. Your letter should be written in a polite manner. An official letter format is followed when writing a complaint letter.

If you are complaining about a manager, how do you write a formal letter of complaint?

These are the basic rules:
  • Don't go into too much detail in your letter. A thorough investigation of your complaint requires detailed information from you.
  • Make sure you stick to the facts.
  • Using offensive or abusive language is never acceptable.
  • Be specific, but do not use emotional language when describing your complaint.

Dear [name],

I have been a loyal employee of this company for the past {{# years/months}} and I feel that I'm not being treated {{properly/correctly}} by my current manager. I would like to place a formal complaint against my manager, {{first & last name of manager}}. It has become increasingly difficult for me to remain {{happy/productive}} in my present position because of the negativity from my manager. No matter how well I perform in my job, I feel {{he/she}} never recognizes me. I feel that {{he/she}} is preventing me from growing and progressing with my career and that has been extremely discouraging to me. I find that {{name}} is not being reasonable at all. It has become so bad that {{he/she}} is now even timing my {{[washroom/lunch/smoke}} breaks. I have never found a rule in the company policies book that empowers a manager to decide the length of a washroom break for one of their subordinates. This is simply not fair. I am asking you to help me resolve this situation and to consider placing me on a different team. I thank you in advance for looking into this matter on my behalf.

Yours sincerely,
