Unlawful Discrimination

PER-5.02 May 1, 1992 Unlawful Discrimination

This policy is obsolete.  Please see PER 1.02 Sexual Harassment and PER 1.10 Discriminatory Harassment




Any employee who believes he or she is the victim of unlawful discrimination (Sections PER-1.01, EEO/Affirmative Action, and 1.02, Sexual Harassment) may complain formally by filing a grievance or appeal (whichever is appropriate to the nature of the complaint) using procedures in Section PER-5.03, Grievances and PER-5.04, Appeals. The university encourages prompt informal action to resolve unlawful discrimination problems.   



Before filing a grievance or appeal involving unlawful discrimination, an employee may request informal review of the problem by the Staff Development and Employee Relations Office which will perform an adequate, reliable, and impartial investigation, including the opportunity to present witnesses and other evidence.  The Staff Development and Employee Relations Office will counsel the employee and supervisor, and make a report to the Vice President for Human Resources including recommendations for remedial action. 

The Vice President for Human Resources will notify the employee of the report and any remedial action in writing to be delivered in person to the employee or sent by certified mail. 

The rights of an employee discussed here are in addition to his or her rights under federal and state civil rights laws. The time limit for filing a grievance or appeal for any employee who sought informal review under this paragraph shall be five workdays after receipt of the report from the Vice President for Human Resources or the regular time limit applicable to the appeal or grievance, whichever is later.   Additional information regarding sexual misconduct can be found in the Sexual Misconduct Brochure.
