Formal Complaints Procedure

 

Stage 1

In the first instance, if you are unable to resolve the issue informally, you should write to the member of staff who dealt with you, or their manager, so that he or she has a chance to put things right.

In your letter you should set out

· the details of your complaint, including the circumstances in which the complaint arose, and a chronological outline of the dates(s) of the event(s

  • the consequences for you as a result

· if you have complained informally to 100 Percent IT and if so, what the outcome was

· if you have complained to any other organisation about the matter and if so, the name of the organisation and the outcome.

  • the remedy you are seeking.

You can expect your complaint to be acknowledged within five (5) working days of receipt. You should get a response and an explanation within ten (10) working days. If the complaint cannot be resolved within ten (10) working days, a full reply should be sent within twenty eight (28) working days.

Stage 2

If you are not satisfied with the initial response to the complaint then you can write to the Managing Director and ask for your complaint and the response to be reviewed. The Managing Director will appoint a suitable Complaints Investigating Officer who will regularly update you about how the investigation is progressing.
