HR created a chart showing the timelines for the various levels of grievances.  (Please note, this chart may be modified or superseded at a later date by a chart produced by the West Virginia Public Employees Grievance Board.  In such event, the Board’s chart will be made available.)

  • Cost Report
  • Level One Hearing Guidelines
