Informal Complaint Process

Any person may submit an informal complaint to the Associate Vice President of Human Resources or any other District or college administrator.  Administrators receiving an informal complaint shall immediately notify the Associate Vice President of Human Resources in writing of all pertinent information and facts alleged in the informal complaint.

Upon receipt of an informal complaint, the Associate Vice President of Human Resources will notify the person bringing the informal complaint of his/her right to file a formal complaint, if the incident falls within the timeline for a formal complaint, and explain the procedure for doing so.  The complainant may later decide to file a formal complaint, if within the timelines to do so.  If the individual chooses not to file a formal complaint, or if the alleged conduct falls outside the timeline to file a formal complaint, the Associate Vice President of Human Resources shall consider the allegations contained in the informal complaint and determine the appropriate course of action.  This may include efforts to informally resolve the matter, or a fact-finding investigation.
