Adverse Employment Decision Grievances
Employees, other than those represented by WLEA, may file a formal grievance contesting only the following adverse employment decisions if the employee alleges that the action was taken without just cause:
Reduction in base pay
All grievances must be filed using the official grievance form (DOA-15802).
An employee's Step 1 grievance must be filed with the employee's designated agency representative, usually Human Resources, within 14 calendar days from the date the employee first became aware, or should have become aware, of the matter being grieved. This typically means 14 days from the date of the letter the employee received informing them of the action. If the grievance is denied at Step 1, the employee can appeal to Step 2 by using the same form.
A Step 2 grievance is electronically submitted to DOADPMGrievance@wisconsin.gov not later than 14 calendar days from the date of the Step 1 decision.
