2. Definition of a Complaint:

A complaint is defined as any expression of dissatisfaction, or concern, whether oral or written, raised by a customer, a customer’s employees or contractors who are subscribed to the Deel platform, or other related stakeholders regarding the services, products, or interactions with the Company that results in a formal request for corrective action, or otherwise warrants an investigation due to the nature and severity of allegations made.

Complaints can be submitted through various designated channels, including but not limited to email, telephone, or through online submission forms such as the following: Customer Request Portal

4. Timelines:

Complaints will be acknowledged within 1 business day of the Company receiving notice of the complaint through the designated channel. Depending on the nature of the complaint, the Company will strive to resolve complaints within 15 business days, with periodic updates provided to the complainant if resolution takes longer.

5. Responsibilities:

Responsibilities for handling complaints will be clearly defined and assigned based on the type, severity, and potential impact of the complaint, with designated personnel at different managerial levels responsible for initial assessments, investigations, and decision-making.
