Non-faculty Employee Complaint and Appeal Process

In an attempt to resolve employee grievances/complaints promptly, informal resolution is recommended where appropriate.  Many problems can be resolved through informal discussions between the employee and the immediate supervisor, department head or human resources.  Although an employee is encouraged to resolve a complaint informally first, he or she may file a complaint without first seeking informal resolution.

An employee wishing to file a formal complaint can begin the process by completing a Non-Faculty Complaint Form and delivering it to the Executive Director of Human Resources (or designee) within (7) seven business days of the action that caused the complaint or (5) five business days of a reduction in force (RIF) notification. A complaint delivered to the Executive Director of Human Resources (or designee) later than seven business days of the action that caused the complaint will be deemed untimely filed and will be dismissed.

The formal complaint process follows University Regulation 32.01.02 Complaint and Appeal Process for Non-Faculty Employees.
