STAFF CONCERNS/COMPLAINTS/GRIEVANCES

It is the policy of the Board of Education to have written grievance procedures which will result in encouraging employees to express themselves on subjects concerning conditions of employment, in fostering a better understanding of policies, and in ensuring all employees that their questions and concerns are considered fairly, rapidly, and without reprisals.  It is the expressed intent of the Board of Education that there shall be no reprisals or retaliation of any kind made, nor will any be tolerated, against any employee who exercises his or her rights under this policy.

 “Grievance” will mean any concern related to personnel policies or salary raised by an employee.

“Employee” will mean a person employed by the District under a written contract.

The specific processes and provisions applicable to grievance procedures are outlined in the Grievances/Concerns/Complaints regulation, GBK-R.  The Board of Education encourages an employee to resolve a grievance or any other issue through the chain of command process prescribed by this policy and regulation or by a negotiated agreement.
