SPA Grievance Process

New SPA Grievance Process Effective May 1, 2014

Last year, the NC General Assembly made significant changes to the SPA Grievance process. Key among the changes is the creation of a uniform grievance policy for all NC State agencies and universities.  The end goal is to ensure that all employees have a fair and equitable means to address workplace disputes arising out of employment regardless of where they work. 

A new Employee Grievance Policy was written to reflect those changes and approved by the State Human Resources Commission.  The policy became effective December 1, 2013 for agencies and will become effective for the university system on May 1, 2014.   Additional resources are provided below by clicking on the highlighted items:
