The State Human Resources Director conducts a review of the appeal after
assembling all records, reports, and documentation of the earlier proceedings
on the grievance. The State Human Resources Director would then determine
whether or not the appeal has met jurisdictional requirements. Appeals that
have met jurisdictional requirements for the following adverse employment
actions: terminations, salary decreases based on performance, demotions,
suspensions for more than ten days, and reductions in force when the State
Human Resources Director determines there is a material issue of fact regarding
inconsistent or improper application of the agency's reduction in force plan or
policy would be forwarded to the State Employee Grievance Committee for a
hearing. Mediation will occur prior to the Committee hearing. Since this is
merely a summary of the process, please refer to the Grievance and Appeal
Regulations and the State Employee Grievance Procedure Act.
