If you have filed or are thinking of filing an administrative grievance against your employer, you should retain the services of an employment attorney as soon as possible.
An attorney who is knowledgeable about all of Colorado’s employment laws can help you review and file your grievance with your employer or an appropriate government agency.
An administrative grievance is a written request for relief that is submitted by an employee or group of employees pertaining to a concern relating to the employment of the individuals. Administrative grievance procedures cover employees who are not members of a union or labor organization.
Employees belonging to a union or labor organization may file administrative grievances if the issue at hand is not covered by a Negotiated Grievance Procedure or if there is no Negotiated Grievance Procedure in effect at the time the administrative grievance is submitted.
Employers or any other staff is prohibited from interfering with an employee’s filing of a grievance. Any act of restraint, coercion, discrimination or retaliation against an employee who files a grievance is illegal.
Employers or co-workers who commit any of these offenses could face severe disciplinary action as well as be in violation of employee laws. Any employee who provides information pertaining to a grievance is also similarly protected.
