Staff Grievance Policy
As a staff member of Southeastern Baptist College, you have the right to work in an environment that is non-threatening and free of harassment of any kind. You are entitled to fair treatment by college administration and a due process of grievance should you believe that you have been treated unfairly or in an inappropriate manner.
In the event you believe that you have been wronged in any way by the college, you should follow the procedure outlined below.
- Initial contact should be made with your supervisor directly over you (displayed in the Institutional Organizational Chart on the last page of the Administrative Handbook). Explain your grievance and give opportunity for him/her to investigate and attempt to bring satisfaction.
- Should your direct supervisor be unable to settle the situation to your satisfaction, contact the administrator over your department (either the Academic Dean or the Executive Vice President).
- Should your administrator be unable to settle the situation to your satisfaction, contact the president of the college. If attempts by the president to alleviate the problem fail, contact the chairman of the board of trustees. His name, address, and phone number can be obtained from the president of the college and/or from the annual yearbook of the Baptist Missionary Association of Mississippi.
The board of trustees is the final source of appeals in matters pertaining to the staff of the college.
