Grievance Committee (I & II)
Staff Liaison: Tracy Nierste

The Grievance Committee receives ethics complaints and arbitration requests to determine if, taken as true on their face, a hearing is to be warranted. The Grievance Committee makes only such preliminary evaluation as is necessary to make these decisions. While the Grievance Committee has meetings, it does not hold hearings, does not decide whether members have violated the Code of Ethics, and does not dismiss ethics complaints because of lack of evidence. The Grievance Committee also reviews and makes a determination on Citation Complaints. Each Grievance Committee group consists of 15 members and meets monthly to conduct their reviews. Meetings typically last two to three hours.
