A grievance is a complaint by an employee concerning the application or violation of an existing policy, personnel rule or directive as it applies to conditions of employment.
The grievance procedure provides a just and equitable method for the resolution of grievances without discrimination, coercion, restraint or reprisal against an employee who may submit or is involved in a grievance. A grievant that fails to comply with the timeframes outlined in the grievance procedure will have his or her grievance withdrawn. If a grievant voluntarily terminates their employment, the grievance will be withdrawn.
After an employee has exhausted the grievance procedure established by the BOR, the employee may appeal to the Career Service Commission. See BOR Policy 4:9.
