Call for Volunteers: Staff Grievance Panelists
Objectivity. Sound judgment. Discretion. A desire to help. If you possess these qualities, the Division of Human Resources is looking for you! We’re seeking volunteers to serve as panelists for the Staff Grievance Program. This program is designed to provide staff members with a fair and equitable process to resolve employment concerns that haven’t been satisfactorily addressed through informal means.
As a panel member, you would assist in conflict resolution to help ensure that staff members’ issues are reviewed in a fair and impartial forum. If selected for a case, you would examine the relevant information, attend a hearing at which the parties involved present their issues, and make a recommendation for resolution.
Volunteers must apply by January 6, 2006. We encourage applications from a diverse cross-section of the Penn community. Regular or retired full-time and part-time staff and faculty are eligible to apply. If you’re interested in volunteering, download an application from the Human Resources website at www.hr.upenn.edu (click on Forms at the top of the page, then click on Staff and Labor Relations Forms) or call Human Resources at (215) 898-6093. All applications must be returned by January 6, 2006 to Human Resources, Staff and Labor Relations, Suite 527A, 340l Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6228.
