6. POLICY STATEMENT
FAC 9.D.3. Grievance Procedure.
3) If the administrative review fails to resolve the problem to the satisfaction of the grievant, the grievant may file a request for review by the Faculty Hearing Committee. If the request follows administrative review, it must be filed within ten working days after the grievant has received notice of the results of the administrative review.
Following the procedures outlined in the sub-chapter titled “Faculty Senate Hearing Committee,” the chairperson of the Faculty Hearing Committee shall convene a subcommittee of five faculty who shall review the grievance and within ten working days determine if there exist sufficient grounds for a hearing. If the subcommittee decides to deny the grievant a hearing, its chairperson shall inform the grievant in writing of the reasons for the denial and shall distribute copies of its rationale to the Chancellor and other parties to the grievance.
If the subcommittee decides that a hearing is warranted, it shall conduct its hearing in accord with the procedures outlined in the sub-chapter titled “Faculty Senate Hearing Committee.” It shall complete its hearing within thirty working days unless because of extenuating circumstance the deadline is extended by mutual agreement of the grievant and the chairperson of the subcommittee or by order of the subcommittee. At the conclusion of the hearing, the subcommittee shall transmit its findings and recommendations to the grievant and to other parties to the grievance and to the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate for submission to the Chancellor.
