The University of North Carolina School of the Arts (“UNCSA”) encourages employees to bring forward concerns about work related issues in a constructive and orderly way. Employees should actively seek resolution of grievances within their work units by initiating discussions of their concerns with their immediate supervisors within reasonable time frames. Should direct communication between an employee and the supervisor not produce a resolution of an employee’s concerns, the employee has available a formal grievance procedure designed to provide a fair review of the matter and to stimulate recommendations for the resolution of the grievance.
This policy covers all “Career State Employees” employed by UNCSA. This policy also covers former employees in this category who bring forward a grievance based on an event which occurred during employment if it is brought within a reasonable time after that event, normally no longer than thirty days after the incident(s) leading to the grievance. Furthermore, this policy covers non-career State employees and applicants for SPA positions.
