Resolving Complaints

Stage One The complaint will be formally acknowledged within 48 hours and will be logged to our customer feedback register within 2 working days. An acknowledgement will confirm who is dealing with the complaint and when the complainant can expect a reply. A copy of this complaints procedure will be attached. In many cases, a complaint is best resolved by the person responsible for the issue being complained about. If the complaint has been received by that person, they should try to do so if possible and appropriate. If it has not already been resolved, an appropriate person (Director) will investigate and take appropriate action within 5 working days.  We may ask the member of staff who dealt with the complainant to reply to the complaint. You may be asked to meet the complainant to discuss and hopefully resolve the complaint.  This will be done within 5 days of the end of our investigation. Within 2 days of that meeting we will write to the complainant to confirm what took place and any solutions agreed with you. If they do not want a meeting or it is not possible, we will send a detailed reply to the complaint. This will include suggestions for resolving the matter. This will be done within 5 days of completing our investigation.  

Escalation Process

Stage Two If the complainant feels that the problem has not been satisfactorily resolved at Stage One, they can request that the complaint is reviewed at Management level. At this stage, the complaint will be passed to The Naked Factory, LLC Management team. The request for Management level review will be acknowledged within 48 hours of receiving it. The acknowledgement will confirm who will deal with the case and when the complainant can expect a reply. The Naked Factory, LLC. may investigate the facts of the case themselves or delegate a suitably senior person to do so. This may involve reviewing the case and speaking with the person who dealt with the complaint at Stage One. If the complaint relates to a specific person, they will be informed and given a further opportunity to respond. Stage 2 complaints will receive a definitive reply within 10 working days.  If this is not possible because for example, an investigation has not been fully completed, a progress report will be sent with an indication of when a full reply will be given. If the decision  is not successful in resolving the entire dispute any outstanding issues will be submitted to binding arbitration under the rules of the American arbitration association the arbitrators award will be final and judgment may be entered upon it by any court having proper jurisdiction .   

Continuous Improvement

Stage 3 We monitor and review the effectiveness of our complaints handling process to ensure that this continuously improves and learnings from complaints handling are carried through into the organization. Complaints are reviewed annually to identify any trends which may indicate a need to take further action.
