Primary Information

    The University has established a grievance policy to ensure fairness and consistency in employee relations and to resolve certain specified contested actions as quickly as possible. This is an internal process and while an employee may seek legal advice, his/her counsel may not actively participate in the process.
     
    You are assured that your status as an employee of the University will not be jeopardized merely for seeking assistance with a problem. Only employees who have completed their probationary period are covered by this policy.
     
    Issues considered appropriate for the grievance process include matters such as:
    • Disciplinary actions against the aggrieved employee, such as written warnings or termination.
    • A violation, misinterpretation, or inequitable application of policy or procedure affecting the employee.
    • Discrimination against an employee because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or covered veterans. Discrimination complaints will be investigated by the Office of Equal Opportunity.
     
    The following issues are not subject to the grievance process:
    • Termination resulting from a reduction in force, or termination for reasons stemming from grants or contracts.
    • The content of published University personnel policies and procedures.
    • Performance reviews.
     
     
    Please contact your Human Resources Business Partner for any grievance related issues.
     
    Please refer to the Employee Handbook for more detail on the University’s 4-step grievance process.
