4.41 Gallaudet Employees Dispute Resolution Procedures
College Hall 106
Last Revised:22 February 2012
Refer Questions to: Director, Equal Opportunity Programs or Human Resources
This policy applies to regular and extended temporary staff who have satisfactorily completed their probationary period in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University, unless specifically covered by collective bargaining agreements made between Gallaudet University and certified bargaining agents.
It is the intent of the University to provide an effective method for employees to bring problems and complaints concerning work to the attention of the administration without fear of retribution or prejudice. Employees are encouraged to use the formal procedures when they believe a decision or action (including termination) is inappropriate, unfair or in violation of the institution’s policies or procedures.
Since the dispute resolution process is an internal review, a representative may advise the employee but may not attend or participate in any stage of the process. With the exception of any right granted or protected by law, employees electing to pursue their complaint through external remedies without first using these procedures waive their right to use these procedures.
Employees who want to discuss or attempt to resolve their problems informally, who desire counseling, who would like to consider mediation, or who wish to obtain clarification of their rights may meet in confidence with the Director of Equal Opportunity Programs or the Director of Human Resources.
