Description

State grievance procedure; review of hearing decisions. Provides that upon the request of a party to a grievance hearing for an administrative review of the hearing decision based on the party's assertion that the hearing decision is inconsistent with a proper interpretation or application of a policy that constituted a material issue in the grievance that formed or should have formed in whole or in part the basis for the hearing decision, the Director of the Department of Human Resource Management shall determine within 60 days of the request, whether the decision is consistent with policy. The bill specifies that the Director's determination shall be made as an independent, de novo review of the grievance and the Director shall identify those factual findings in the hearing decision that are relevant and material to the policy in question and explain whether those findings support the hearing decision relating to the application of the policy in question. Currently, upon the request of a party to a grievance hearing for an administrative review of the hearing decision, the Director of the Department of Human Resource Management must determine within 30 days of the conclusion of any other administrative review, whether the hearing decision is consistent with policy. Amends § 2.2-3006, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
