Reasons for Filing a Walgreens Employees’ Complaint

If you’re a Walgreens employee, there may be a variety of reasons for filing a complaint to HR. Some of them are as simple as high-stress working environments but others warrant a trip to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Some of these serious matters include:

  • Breach of employment contract
  • Unreasonable schedules and working hours
  • Safety and health complaints
  • Verbal or physical assault
  • Unequal pay 
  • Employer retaliation against a whistleblower
  • Discrimination against an employee’s race, age, gender, or disability
  • Sexual or physical harassment

How to File a Walgreens Employees’ Complaint

Whether you have a complaint against a Walgreens co-worker or your manager, filing a complaint can be a daunting experience. Most companies have clear-cut procedures on filing a complaint and some have a standardized complaint form that employees can simply fill out. However, it has been reported that Walgreens does not have incident report forms available to employees. Another option is to draft a formal complaint letter by yourself. When submitting a Walgreens employee complaint letter, it is important to take note of these points:

  1. Know your employment rights – Employees are protected by state and federal laws. Such laws include protecting you from your boss discriminating against your race, gender, religion, or disability.
  2. Document the incident – This is the best way for you to build a case against whoever you are complaining against. Put everything in writing and include important details. Talk to co-workers who would be willing to provide testimonies so you have witnesses to support your complaints.
  3. Talk to your supervisor – If you believe that you can trust the supervisor, you may try talking to him or her privately. It could be possible that they are not aware of ongoing issues. Private conversations can sometimes be enough to resolve issues. Otherwise, you can report to HR directly instead.
  4. Follow procedures – Review your Walgreens employee handbook if you have access to one. Follow the correct process and procedure for filing an HR complaint. This way, you reduce the risk of HR rejecting your complaint if you failed to follow protocols.

There are instances when HR may not challenge authority figures, especially if your complaint is against someone in upper management. If this happens, you can start looking for legal options such as going to EEOC or OSHA. If you’re worried about facing repercussions or being terminated from your position, DoNotPay can help!
