Purpose

To declare PMU guidelines with regards to Grievance Levels of Communications Policy and ensure uniform interpretation and application of this policy.


Statement

APPROPRIATE ADMINISTRATOR

Within one (1) week of receiving the grievance from the Director, Human Resources, the appropriate administrator shall meet with the employee (the griever) to hear the grievance and seek any further clarification of the matter.  The griever may request that they be accompanied to the meeting by another PMU employee.  A representative of the Human Resources Department will also be present at the meeting.  The appropriate administrator may wish to meet with other individuals who could provide further information concerning the matter.  Once the appropriate administrator has completed his or her investigation, a written reply to the grievance will be made to the employee with a copy to the Human Resources Department.  If the employee believes that their grievance has not been resolved then they may proceed to the next level.  The employee would submit a written statement to the Director, Human Resources, in response to the appropriate administrator.  The Director, Human Resources would then refer the documentation to the next appropriate administrator.

NEXT APPROPRIATE ADMINISTRATOR

Within one (1) week of receiving the grievance from the Director, Human Resources, the next appropriate administrator would meet with the employee.  The process and procedures would be similar to point 4 above.  Once the administrator has completed his or her investigation, he or she will respond to the employee in writing with his or her decision.  This stage of the formal grievance procedure will be the last stage.  Should the employee still believe that the decision by this administrator does not resolve the matter they may appeal this decision to the Rector.

APPEAL TO RECTOR

The Rector will decide whether he requires a meeting with the employee or not.  The Rector will make a final decision on the matter within two (2) weeks of receiving the appeal.  The Rector’s decision is final and binding
