Default Re: look at a complaint

No - here it means she tried to get into some confidential files to see what people had been writing about her. Later in the article it says :

Ms Walker had also acted provocatively in seeking to view complaints laid against her by colleagues....Ms Walker was entitled to view and formally respond to complaints against her, Mr Gardiner said.

In another context though, it could mean "to investigate a complaint" (though look into would probably be more usual) :

Can we have a meeting to look at the complaints that have been coming in about the new product.
I'll look at/into the complaints as soon as I get back from the meeting.
