Decisions (non sexed-based cases) Involving Employees as Respondents

For a complaint against an employee or third party, the Designated Administrator will review the investigation report and provide a draft decision to OGC for review within five (5) business days after receiving the investigative authority’s report. OGC will coordinate with SECO and provide its review of the draft decision within five (5) business days. The Designated Administrator will have five (5) business days to finalize the decision and provide it to the complainant(s), the respondent(s), and the investigative authority. In cases in which the allegations are substantiated, the final decision will be provided to the respondent’s supervisor.

When the respondent(s) is an employee, both the complainant(s) and the respondent(s) may review a copy of the investigation report and exhibits, with admonishments regarding privacy, after the decision is rendered. The report will be redacted in accordance with state and/or federal law.
