While it's certainly preferable to have satisfied employees who don't have any complaints, problems sometimes develop. It's generally a best practice to have an open door policy that encourages employees to speak to managers or HR representatives regarding any complaints they may have, but it is also a good idea to provide a standard form that employees can use to submit complaints in writing.

Dealing With Complaints

When complaints come, it's important that you deal with them promptly, thoroughly, and in a manner that is consistent with your company's policies and procedures. If you receive a complaint from a worker, it's advisable to review your employee handbook to make sure you have a clear understanding of what employees have been told regarding how to expect complaints to be handled.
