– assist Talent or its representative in formulating the complaint;
– carefully investigate the possibilities of arriving at a solution to the complaint.
In the performance of the task, the support staff member is authorised to do everything that is reasonably necessary for proper supervision of the process when handling a complaint.
The support staff member will make agreements with the complainant about the confidentiality of the interviews.
The support staff member must act independently and impartially towards the complainant and Genderness and her affiliated organizations as well as the staff member involved in the complaint.
The support staff member must therefore refrain from any behaviour that could give rise to the suspicion of (the appearance of) partiality and/or the non-independence of the position.
If the support staff member is or has been involved in a matter to which the complaint relates, or cannot independently and impartially perform the job in an individual case due to circumstances, the support staff member must report this to Genderness and her affiliated organizations as soon as possible. Genderness and her affiliated organizations will then ensure that another (deputy) support employee is appointed.
Genderness and her affiliated organizations will ensure that the support employee can perform his function independently and will not disadvantage the support employee because of the way in which the function is performed.

  1. In the event of dissatisfaction, the complainant prefers to first contact the employee or his manager to reach an informal solution.
    The complainant will be given the opportunity to discuss his or her dissatisfaction. Other persons will be involved in this discussion if this is conducive to resolving the dissatisfaction and the complainant does not object to it.
    If the discussion does not lead to a satisfactory solution of the dissatisfaction, the complainant will be referred to the Genderness and her affiliated organizations Complaints Procedure. The complainant is also referred to the possibility of seeking advice from the support staff member (if the support staff member is not yet in the picture). In consultation with each other, the support staff member and the complainant will try to reach a satisfactory solution in an informal manner.
    If the dissatisfaction has not been dispelled, the complainant can (or if the situation arises that the complainant does not (dare to) turn directly to the staff member) make his complaint known to the Genderness and her affiliated organizations or support staff member to which Genderness and her affiliated organizations or support staff member is affiliated. When filing a complaint, the complainant can appeal for support from the support employee. This support consists of the support employee assisting the complainant in formulating the (oral) complaint.
    A complaint must be submitted to Genderness and her affiliated organizations in writing via a dated complaints form.
    The date on which the complaint is submitted to Genderness and her affiliated organizations via the complaint form and thus received by Genderness and her affiliated organizations is considered the formal starting date of the complaints procedure.

After receipt of the written complaint, Genderness and her affiliated organizations sends the complaint to the support employee for further processing (if he or she was not yet involved).
The complainant will be declared inadmissible if:
a complaint relates to other dissatisfaction than is defined in the definitions in the Genderness and her affiliated organizations Complaints Procedure; –
a complaint is submitted by a person other than the circle of persons who may submit a complaint on the basis of Article 1 of the Complaints Procedure.
In the event that the complainant is inadmissible in his complaint, Genderness and her affiliated organizations will confirm this in writing to the person lodging the complaint.
If the complaint relates to persons other than Genderness and her affiliated organizations, Genderness and her affiliated organizations will ensure that the handling is transferred to the person to whose actions the complaint relates, unless the complainant has not given permission for this.
The support employee will contact the complainant in order to determine, in consultation with the complainant, how the complaint can best be handled.
The complainant will receive written confirmation of the submitted complaint within 2 weeks. This confirmation must at least include: a brief description of the complaint (including date, place and special circumstances) the further handling of the complaint and the period within which the complaint is expected to be handled.
When handling the complaint, the support staff member will apply both sides of the argument, whereby the support staff member will ensure that if the complaint (partly) concerns an employee, this person can also be given the opportunity to give his opinion on the complaint.
The support staff member will keep the complainant and Genderness and her affiliated organizations informed in writing of the progress of the handling of the complaint.
The support staff member will try to reach a solution to the complaint through mediation.
A complaint will be dealt with within a period of 6 weeks after the date of receipt, whereby there is a possibility to extend this period, stating reasons. The complainant will be informed in writing, stating the reasons, of the findings of the investigation into the complaint, as well as of any further measures that may be taken as a result of the complaint submitted. The decision(s) or any measure(s) taken in relation to the complaint, which is (are) relevant to the complainant or the staff concerned, should be notified to them as soon as the decision(s) or measures have been taken.
GenderTalent assumes that the complainant agrees with the decision.
A complaint must be submitted within a reasonable period of time after the complainant is aware or could reasonably have been aware that the conduct of Genderness and her affiliated organizations could result in a complaint as referred to in the Complaints Procedure.
The complainant will receive the letter as referred to in paragraph 3 as soon as possible, but at the latest within six weeks after the date on which the complaint was submitted to Genderness and her affiliated organizations.
If, in the opinion of Genderness and her affiliated organizations, the required careful investigation of a complaint requires this, the term as referred to in the previous paragraph may be extended by a maximum of four weeks.
If it turns out to be impossible to reach a solution to the complaint within the terms mentioned in this article, the term can be extended by Genderness and her affiliated organizations by as much longer as necessary, provided the complainant has agreed to the extension in writing.
If the complaint has not been settled to the complainant’s satisfaction, there is the possibility to file the complaint with a third party. In the case of the UWV, the UWV is the point of contact for this. Otherwise, GenderTalent refers to the NOLOC or the Disputes Committee.

Genderness and her affiliated organizations ensures that the regulation is made known to the general public, and Talent in particular, among other things by mentioning it on its own website and by verbally pointing out the existence of the Genderness and her affiliated organizations Complaints Procedure in the event of a complaint.
Genderness and her affiliated organizations informs employees and others about the Genderness and her affiliated organizations Complaints Procedure and asks and supports them to act in accordance with it.
The persons involved in the handling of a complaint are obliged to observe confidentiality with regard to (personal) data obtained, the confidential nature of which is known or should reasonably be deemed to be known. This means that this information may not be provided to third parties.
Exceptions to the obligation of confidentiality are permitted if a statutory regulation, a final judicial decision or ex officio obligations require disclosure.
