In the interest of equitable and efficient operation of the System, employees of the Board shall be afforded a mechanism by which grievances can be resolved at the earliest opportunity.
This policy applies to Administrator/Professional Technical employee(s), Faculty and Adjunct Instructor(s), and Classified employee(s) (CCCS Employees). This policy shall apply to Classified employee(s) to the extent the grievance is discrimination and/or harassment based on federal or state civil rights laws; otherwise the State Personnel rules shall apply. Presidents are excluded from this policy.

Both grievance processes will require the following:
The System President shall promulgate procedures necessary to implement this policy.
