GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

Grievance Procedure Under the Americans with Disabilities Act

This Grievance Procedure is established to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). It may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of services, activities, programs, or benefits by the Town of New Harmony. The Town of New Harmony’s Personnel Policy governs employment-related complaints of disability discrimination.

The complaint should be in writing and contain information about the alleged discrimination such as name, address, phone number of complainant and location, date, and description of the problem. Alternative means of filing a complaint, such as personal interviews or a tape recording of the complaint will be made available for persons with disabilities upon request.

The complaint should be submitted by the grievant and/or his/her designee as soon as possible but no later than 180 calendar days after the alleged violation to:

Karla Atkins, Clerk-Treasurer
Town of New Harmony
P.O. Box 340
New Harmony, Indiana, 47631

Within 15 calendar days after receipt of the complaint, Karla Atkins, or her designee will meet with the complainant to discuss the complaint and the possible resolutions. Within 15 calendar days of the meeting, Karla Atkins, or her designee will respond in writing, and where appropriate, in a format accessible to the complainant, such as large print, Braille, or audio tape. The response will explain the position of the Town of New Harmony and offer options for substantive resolution of the complaint.

If the response by Karla Atkins, or her designee does not satisfactorily resolve the issue, the complainant and/or his/her designee may appeal the decision within 15 calendar days after receipt of the response to the Town Council President or his/her designee.

Within 15 calendar days after receipt of the appeal, the Town Council President or his/her designee will meet with the complainant to discuss the complaint and possible resolutions. Within 15 calendar days after the meeting, the Town Council President or his/her designee will respond in writing, and where appropriate, in a format accessible to the complainant, with a final resolution of the complaint.

All written complaints received by Karla Atkins or her designee, appeals to the Town Council President or his/her designee, and responses from these two offices will be retained by the Town of New Harmony for at least three years.
