If an employee covered by this MOU suffers loss of compensation due to the inequitable application of rules, regulations, policies and procedures and where said loss of compensation is not subject to the grievance procedure specified in Section 31, the employee shall attempt to resolve the matter with the immediate supervisor. If unable to resolve the matter satisfactorily, the employee or the employee’s Union representative may submit the complaint in writing to Employee Relations with a copy to the Human Resources Department Director. If this matter is not resolved by Employee Relations within thirty working days from the date of receipt of the complaint, the employee or the Union representative shall advise the Human Resources Department Director in writing that the matter has not been resolved and the Human Resources Department Director shall render a decision within fifteen working days of receipt of this notification, which decision shall be final.

The County recognizes that other employee problems also merit prompt attention and will attempt to handle such matters in an expeditious manner.
