Other Work Related Complaints
Have you ever had a disagreement at work about a job assignment, your schedule, a performance evaluation, or the interpretation or application of a rule? Whether it involves your supervisor, a co-worker, or someone from another office on campus, HRM can assist you in reaching an equitable resolution.
Where to start
Many complaints involve communication problems, so a good place to start with almost any work related complaint is to listen. Try to understand the issue from the other party's point of view. After listening, try to agree on a solution.
Where to go next
Work with your chain of command. You can ask your supervisor for help. Sometimes another opinion can help you see all sides of an issue.
The formal process
While most complaints can be resolved informally, HRM can assist employees, co-workers and supervisors with formal resolution options including:
- Consulting with employees and supervisors about policies and complaint resolution options.
- Explaining the timelines contained in the resolution policies.
- Providing assurance that employees are heard and that processes are followed.
If you need to discuss a matter with the employee relations staff, we will maintain confidentiality in a manner consistent with State and Federal regulations. Some issues may require further investigation or consultation with other campus departments. In such cases, information will only be shared with other individuals on a need-to-know basis.
