1.30 Conflict Resolution Policy

I. Policy

This policy establishes an informal process for any full-time employee who claims to have a conflict.

II. Informal Resolution of Conflicts

A. Informal Conflict Resolution Within the Unit

Employees should bring to the attention of their supervisor any work-related problems as soon as possible after they arise. If attempts to resolve the issue with the immediate supervisor are unsuccessful, or, if the immediate supervisor is part of the concern, the employee should proceed within the unit administrative chain until the conflict is resolved. Informal conflicts will ultimately be decided upon by the Unit Vice President.

B. Informal Mediation

Employees may contact Human Resources to discuss the mediation program at any time.
