Handling Grievances (PART 2): The Hearing

By. Stuart D. Adams, Esq.,     

     This article is the second in a series about grievances. It is intended as a general guide only and is based upon the opinion of its author. Anyone seeking to file a grievance or with questions on their grievance process should contact Adams, Ferrone & Ferrone or their legal representative for the purpose of obtaining legal advice specific to their needs.

Failure to follow the grievance procedure rules of your agency can result in your losing the grievance.
