Witness at grievance proceedings
We can provide some help for professional staff who are in the grievance process. Contact us when you initiate the process or are informed of the grievance, and one of our councilmembers will get in touch with you.
Typically, we like to meet with you before the grievance proceeding to understand the situation and make sure you’re aware of your rights. We will also attend any and all grievance proceedings that you want us to, as long as a council member is available. During the proceeding, we are there as a witness and to support you.
What we can do:
- Offer support
- Take notes as an unbiased third party
- Ensure you know your rights
What we can’t do
- Take sides or issue a judgment
- Speak on your behalf or act as an attorney
