The outcome of a complaint/grievance may be appealed by the grievant or the employee(s) named in the complaint/grievance if either party has new information or evidence of procedural errors in the handling of the grievance that substantially impacted the outcome. Appeals are reviews of process, not a new examination of contested issues. Appeals must detail the grounds for appeal and identify a suggested remedy. Appeals are to be filed with the administrator responsible for the Department Head, Dean, or Vice President who responded to the complaint/grievance form, no later than 7 business days after the parties receive notice of the outcome. The administrator reviewing the appeal, or designee, may request a meeting or additional information, if needed. A written decision will be provided to all parties within 21 business days of receiving the appeal unless reasonable cause for delay exists.
