The Office of Employee Relations counsels employees and provides assistance in informally resolving work-related problems. The office also provides consulting services to managers and HR Officers on the interpretation of collective bargaining agreements and work-related policies and procedures, including the application of the University's progressive disciplinary policy.

Managers or supervisors who are planning to take disciplinary action against an employee, especially if that action is suspension or termination of employment, should consult their HR Officer or, in the absence of that person, contact the Office of Employee Relations at once.
