Staff and Student Employee Grievances Policy

January 20, 2022

The Staff and Student Employee Grievances Policy establishes a framework for staff and student employees to be able to formally raise workplace concerns.

This policy updates the University’s previous University Grievances Policy.

Overview of Revised Policy:

• The title of the policy was revised to reflect the audience in which the policy applies, specifically making it clear the applicability for student employees.

• The policy was updated to include additional policy documents for reference.

• The policy principles were updated to include language surrounding the University’s stance on prohibiting retaliation against an employee who chooses to utilize the University’s grievance process.

• The policy’s informal and formal procedures were updated to encourage open communication between an employee and their supervisor and to expand on the various options to submit a formal grievance.
