SMCCE 32.2 Procedure

Any employee or official of the Council may notify the Human Resources Director in writing that a grievance exists, stating the particulars of the grievance and, if possible, the nature of the determination desired. Such notification must be received within twenty-eight (28) calendar days from the date of the employee’s or Council official’s knowledge of the alleged grievance. The Employee Relations Unit will review the matter at issue and make a recommendation to the Public Works Director concerning resolution. The decision of the Public Works Director, if not satisfactory, may be appealed to the County Manager whose decision shall be final.
