65-500 EMPLOYEE COMPLAINTS AND GRIEVANCES POLICY The Oglala Lakota College Board of Trustees shall provide employees with guidelines and procedures for use in fairly and legally resolving problems that arise from any practice, condition of employment, situations or events, or other performance or personnel matters that affect or interrupt employees' delivery of contracted services. The established complaints and grievance procedures shall include both formal and informal procedures, and shall ensure fair, equitable, legal, consistent, and timely processing of employee grievances. Employees shall be responsible for the initiation of complaints and grievance procedures to resolve work difficulties; failure to use established procedures shall constitute a violation of the employee contract agreement that may result in disciplinary action. A major focus of the employee grievance and complaints procedure shall be to resolve difficulties at the lowest administrative level. If the employee chooses not to appeal an appealable sanction, the action and sanction shall become final without further proceedings or notice to the employee. An appeal shall not stay or delay the effective date of the sanction specified in the notice of the disciplinary action.
