For Employees

EMPLOYEE GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE (Tech Manual Amendment 11/30/18)

We believe our employees are our most important asset. We need your help to ensure we have a positive, healthy, ethical work environment for the people we employ and for the people we support. Every employee shall have the right to present a grievance according to this procedure, with or without a representative, free from interference, coercion, restraint, discrimination, penalty, or reprisal.

Step One: An employee should file a grievance, either orally or in writing, with his or her immediate supervisor within ten (10) days of the date of the incident giving rise to the grievance. The immediate supervisor shall meet with the employee within five (5) working days of receipt of the grievance and attempt to resolve the grievance informally. If informal resolution fails, the immediate supervisor shall issue a written decision on the grievance no later than five (5) working days following the meeting.

Step Two: If the employee wishes to pursue the grievance after Step One, he or she may file the grievance orally or in writing with the Director of Operations of HomeCare Management Corporation. Written statements may be requested for clarification. The Director of Operations will issue a written decision on the grievance no later than five (5) working days after receipt of requested written statements. If complainant remains unsatisfied, they are encouraged to utilize the Ethics Point Platform.

If preferred, employees can bypass the grievance procedure and submit anonymous information directly into our Ethics Point system:
