Your Employee Rights and How to Report Wrongful Conduct
The United States Courts for the District of Nebraska is committed to maintaining a workplace free of discrimination and harassment, where respect, civility, fairness, tolerance, and dignity are the norm.
Employment Dispute Resolution Plan
On March 3rd, 2021 the Court approved a new Employment Dispute Resolution Plan, which covers all judicial employees (including judges and chambers staff), provides a procedure to resolve employment disputes through informal counseling, assisted resolution, or, if necessary, a formal complaint. The Plan incorporates employment laws such as Title VII, the Age Discrimination Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act; and prohibits discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and abusive conduct such as bullying and intimidating behavior.
