Language to Request Employer Material



Under WHRH 430 this information is to be turned over to the grievant upon request and/or when a grievance has been filed. There is no cost involved. This is not to be confused with an Open Records request in which the employer may charge a fee for copies. Do not make reference to Open Records request. If you need assistance, contact the Chief Steward or a Field Rep.

Use the following terminology, "Prior to the hearing, we will need additional information. Specifically, letters, e-mails, copies of performance evaluations and any and all materials that were used in determining and supporting employee X's discipline." In rare cases will the agency send information to the steward/representative; they will send it to the grievant. For reference, you as a representative can make this request by stating, "I am Employee X's Representative in the below listed e-mails and prior to the hearing, we will need additional information. Specifically, letters, e-mails, copies of performance evaluations and any and all materials that were used in determining and supporting employee X's discipline." If you do this, make sure to cc the grievant and the HR Representative.
