College Policy Number/Title:
The college expects that every effort will be made on the part of both parties to reach an amicable and rational solution to issues prior to entering the dispute resolution process.
The process for resolution of disputes other than suspension, dismissal, termination and expiration of contracts involving employees other than faculty consists of the procedures enumerated below when there is a difference between the employee and his/her immediate supervisor as it relates to work-related practices. The following steps shall be followed in order to provide for a smooth and efficient method of handling disputes between individual employees and their supervisors.
Dispute Resolution Procedures
The employee should specify in writing the nature of the dispute, the attempts at resolving the dispute and suggested solutions. Within ten working days of receipt of the request for a Step 3 procedure, the employee's vice president will prepare a written decision concerning the dispute. The decision shall be communicated to the employee, the employee's supervisor and the office of human resources.
This procedure will not affect the disputes which allege that the individual's constitutional rights have been violated.Effective Date: 6/10/1992
