What is an Appeal hearing outcome letter?

The Appeal Hearing Outcome Letter communicates the decision made following an employee's appeal following a disciplinary / grievance / flexible working application (for example) outcome.

It provides a formal summary of the appeal hearing proceedings, including any additional evidence or arguments presented by the employee and the employer's response. This letter serves to inform the employee of the outcome of their appeal, whether it upholds the original decision, overturns it, or modifies the original action taken.

The Appeal Hearing Outcome Letter plays a crucial role in maintaining transparency and fairness in the process. It ensures that employees understand the reasons behind the final decision and are aware of any further steps available to them, such as escalation procedures or alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.
