GBM - Staff Complaints
Adopted: 10/26/15 Orig. Code(s): GBM
The superintendent or designee will develop a complaint procedure which will be available for all employees who believe there is evidence of, and wish to report a violation, misinterpretation or inappropriate application of district personnel policies and/or administrative regulations; a mismanagement, gross waste of funds or abuse of authority, or believe there is evidence that the district created a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety by its actions. The complaint procedure will provide an orderly process for the consideration and resolution of problems in the application or interpretation of district personnel policies.
The complaint procedure will not be used to resolve disputes and disagreements related to the provisions of any negotiated contract, nor will it be used in any instance where a negotiated contract provides a dispute resolution procedure. Disputes concerning an employee's dismissal or non-renewal will not be grieved under this procedure.
All reasonable efforts will be made to resolve complaints informally.
The district will use the complaint process in policy KL - Public Complaints to address any alleged violations of this policy.
