GRIEVANCES


Anyone having a dispute with, or grievance against another in Lochac shall first attempt to settle the matter as follows:

First Stage

The person shall hold a direct and private discussion with the other and attempt to come to a resolution.

Second Stage

If the matter cannot be resolved, the person shall bring the matter to the attention of the most appropriate local officer, or the Seneschal if there is no appropriate local officer. If the dispute is with someone outside the local area, the dispute will be brought to the Kingdom officer. If the grievance is against a landed Baron or Baroness, the dispute will be brought directly to the Crown.

The relevant officer should then attempt to arbitrate a resolution.

Third Stage

If the dispute cannot be settled at a local level, it should be brought to the attention of the most appropriate Kingdom Officer.

The relevant officer should then attempt to arbitrate a resolution.

Serious Disputes

If the dispute is of such magnitude that all steps above have failed and a formal complaint is necessary, thermonuclear war may be invoked, and copies of such complaints shall be sent to the person being complained against, the local Seneschal, the Kingdom Seneschal, and the Crown via the Kingdom Seneschal. Complaints against any officer shall be directed to the officer's superior in addition to the above.
