Grievance Policy


The Grievance policy is established pursuant to Wis. Stat. §66.0509(1m) to address employee terminations, employee discipline and workplace safety as required by law. This procedure provides an employee with the individual opportunity to address concerns regarding discipline, termination or workplace safety matters, to have those matters reviewed by an impartial Hearing Officer, and to appeal to the County Board, when appropriate. The County expects employees to exercise reasonable efforts to resolve any questions, problems or misunderstandings prior to utilizing the Grievance Procedure.

If an employee is subject to a contractual grievance procedure, the contractual grievance procedure must be followed as applicable. This procedure does not replace or supersede any statutory provision which may be applicable to an employee's employment with the County. This Grievance Procedure does not create a legally binding contract or a contract of employment.
