"I decided to file a complaint to the store manager." -- What does it mean?

Does it mean the person is going to complain to the manager about someone, or that he/she is going to complain to someone about the manager?

Is there a difference between filing a complaint to someone and filing a complaint against someone?

Thanks in advance.

I filed/lodged a complaint with the manager against the cashier.


As you can see, my problem was with the cashier and not the manager. The manager merely accepted the complaint.

Note that "lodge" and "file" have the same general meaning. I would understand "file" to refer to a written formal complaint and "lodge" could refer to an oral or written formal or informal complaint. The key word is "could". There are exceptions to every exception including this one.
Thanks very much!
