Complaint Resolution Process
A complaint is a written claim by an employee regarding a specific management action(s) that is alleged to have adversely affected that employee’s existing terms and conditions of employment in a material way.
An employee has 30 days to file a complaint.
The employee should attempt to resolve the issue informally with his or her immediate supervisor, the staff ombuds office or, if appropriate, the Title IX officer, however, this does not extend the deadline for filing a written complaint. An extension may be granted if the request is made in writing prior to the 30 day mark.
