It is the policy of ‘The Olive Press’, also referred to as TOP; to treat all clients with fairness and professionalism and to strive for excellence in providing services to clients. TOP policy provides clients and their families or legal guardians with the opportunity to express a problem or grievance related to the quality of services. If you feel you have been treated unfairly, unprofessionally or feel that your rights have been breached, the following procedure should be used.
TOP's grievance procedure is designed to provide a means for clients receiving services to bring a grievance to the attention of TOP’s and to reach a speedy resolution. TOP’s has a strict policy prohibiting retaliation in any form against anyone who files a grievance.
A grievance is defined as any situation or condition that a client thinks is unfair, unjust or inequitable. In addition, if a client merely states they want to file a grievance, a grievance should be completed. Under this Client Grievance Procedure, you should submit a grievance in the following sequence:
If you have a grievance, the concern can be discussed with a TOP supervising staff. If you decide to speak to a TOP staff member and an agreement cannot be reached, you should proceed to the next step of this grievance procedure. You can also file a grievance without any discussion and proceed to the next step. Grievance forms can be found at the following:
* On our website at www.theolivepress.org. See "Grievance Policy"
If the matter has not been resolved to your satisfaction, you may choose to discuss your concerns with any supervisor.
Once notified by email, TOP will initiate an investigation within two business days and provide an acknowledgment to you within 7 business days.
TOP will report the outcome of the complaint investigation to you within 14 business days after the complaint is received. If it has not been possible to gather the necessary information that would lead to a resolution by 14 days, you will be notified and given a new date, up to 30 days, by which a resolution or determination will be made. ***NOTE-If you exit TOP's Safe Housing Program please leave a forwarding email so we may continue the grievance process***
If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the results, you may contact TOP's Board at email@example.com to further discuss the matter. The CEO will conduct a review of the matter and will respond to you electronically within 10 business days. The CEO's decision and recommendations will be final.
