Volunteers Needed: Help Your Colleagues Resolve Employment Issues

November 22, 2011, Volume 58, No. 13

When colleagues have concerns about the terms and conditions of their employment—such as disciplinary action or involuntary termination—you can help them address these tough matters by volunteering as a panelist for the Staff Grievance Program.

The Staff Grievance Program provides Penn staff with a fair and equitable process to resolve workplace issues. As a panel member, you’ll listen to the issues raised by those involved in the grievance, and then make a recommendation on how best to resolve the situation. This is an excellent opportunity to help with conflict resolution and give staff members an impartial forum to address their employment concerns. All regular full- and part-time Penn faculty and staff and retirees are eligible to apply.

We’re seeking a diverse group of volunteers to help make the panel as impartial as we can. If you’re interested in volunteering, complete the online application at www.hr.upenn.edu/staffrelations by January 27, 2012.
