Grievance Procedure

Non-probationary classified employees have the right to use the formal grievance procedure to resolve complaints or disputes about employment at the University. A grievance must be initiated within 30 calendar days of the action being grieved. A formal grievance should be the last step taken in trying to resolve a complaint. Most employee concerns and complaints can be resolved informally through communication between you and your supervisor.

Other informal grievance channels available to you include using the reporting line in your department. Mediation provides another option, as does contacting the Department of Human Resources to assist with complaint resolution.

Grievance procedure brochures are available in the Department of Human Resources and provide you with information on the process and requirements. Employees may contact the Employee Relations Manager in the Department of Human Resources for further information and/or assistance.
