How to Write a Letter of Complaint About Bullying to an Office Manager

Updated April 17, 2017

Bullying in the workplace may be physical or mental - it has adverse effects on productivity and well-being. If you or someone you know who works with you is being bullied by someone at work, then it should be reported to a supervisor or an office manager who can take the necessary steps to control the situation. The letter of complaint should be clear, candid and specific.

Divide letter into three parts: Part 1 should give details of bullying behaviour, when it occurred (if it was an isolated incident or if it has happened numerous times). Provide details of time, place and witnesses, if any.

Provide a detailed account of how this bullying has affected you in the next portion of the letter. Write candidly about the psychological anguish that has been inflicted upon you and how this has affected your work. If you are complaining about bullying you have observed to others, give details of how, in your opinion, this has affected the work and personality of the person who has been bullied.

Conclude your letter by signing off and providing details of name, telephone number and address where you can be reached.

Seal and address the envelope to the manager. Deliver it personally or via mail.
