Sub : Grievance Letter to employer for non-payment of bonus

Dear Sir,

I am hereby writing this letter to address my grievance on account of non-payment of bonus for the financial year 2013-2014. I have been working in the organization for the past one and half years and was not given bonus last year on grounds that I joined after the performance assessment period and was not eligible for any bonus. Even this year I have been denied the bonus though all other employees working in our organization have received the same.

As a result of this discrimination my financial status has suffered severely when compared to other employees in the organization besides feeling de-motivated to work. I wish to get a proper written explanation from the management for denying me bonus for this financial year as well. Nevertheless I will be forced to initiate a complaint to the employees’ grievance redressal cell of the state with my plea. I am herewith enclosing my salary slip for the last one year for your reference.

Hope to get a reply soon from your end positively.
