Employee Conduct Rights

The United States District Court, District of Utah is firmly committed to a policy that abusive conduct, discrimination, or harassment—based on race, sex, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age (40 years and over), or disability—is prohibited in the workplace. 

The Court has adopted the Employment Dispute Resolution Plan of the United States District Court and the United States Probation Office for the District of Utah (EDR Plan), which allows employees and interviewed applicants to report wrongful conduct in the work place. A Judicial Misconduct Complaint should be filed with the Tenth Circuit.

Employees and applicants can report, resolve, and seek remedies for discrimination, harassment, or other workplace misconduct under the EDR Plan by contacting any of the Court's EDR Coordinators, Court Unit Executives, the Circuit Director of Workplace Relations, or the National Judicial Integrity Officer listed below. 

If you experience or observe workplace misconduct, or have ideas on improvement of workplace respect and teamwork, communicate with an EDR contact, make a confidential report, request assisted resolution, or file a formal complaint. We need your help to improve our workplace, learn from everyone, and prevent misconduct for continuing or worsening.
