Non-Discrimination

26.21

It is the policy of the CSU to prohibit discrimination against bargaining unit employees on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, age, disability, or veteran's status. Any allegations by an employee that he/she has been the victim of such discrimination shall be adjudicated solely under the grievance procedure provided in Executive Order No. 419 as hereby amended in this Article.

26.22

Executive Order 419 is amended to provide for advisory fact-finding upon appeal to Level III.

The request for the supplemental advisory fact-finding investigation must be filed no later than fourteen (14) days after the Level II response. If a request for advisory fact-finding is not made, and a Level III complaint is not filed in the fourteen (14) day period, the complaint will be considered settled. Upon receipt of an appeal to Level III, the Office of the Chancellor may also exercise the option of an advisory fact-finding investigation.

Upon receipt of the request for an advisory fact-finding investigation, a member of a panel drawn from the resources of the American Arbitration Association will be asked to review all issues and evidence presented for the Level II complaint.

The advisory fact-finding report will be considered in the determination of the Level III complaint.

26.24

The advisory fact-finding hearing will be held in accordance with the Voluntary Labor Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The cost of such hearing, excluding advocate, unilateral withdrawal, postponement, or cancellation fees, shall be borne equally by the parties. Expenses for witnesses, however, shall be borne by the party who calls them.

26.25

If the Union is not representing the complainant, then the complainant will bear the costs associated with his/her processing of a complaint under Executive Order 419 as hereby amended in this Article.
