Procedure for Uinta Brewing Company Employees

The following complaint reporting procedure has been developed to assist employees in resolving all types of complaints and disputes no matter how small. Use this procedure to file complaints regarding work rules, working conditions, disputes with other employees, unfair practices, and any type of harassment. Complaints filed will be held in confidence and information will only be released on a “need to know” basis for the purpose of conducting an investigation.

Bring your complaint to your immediate supervisor. Explain the complaint in detail and offer any solutions you may have. If applicable, outline what actions you would like management to consider to correct the situation. Your supervisor will provide an answer to you immediately or within ten working days (depending on the severity of the complaint) from the date the complaint was filed.

NOTE: If for some reason you feel that you cannot take your complaint to your immediate supervisor, take it to the next higher level of management or Employee Experience. Ideally, the complaint should be presented within 72 hours.

You have the right to appeal the decision to the next higher level of management or the executive management of the Company. All appeals must be filed in writing within ten working days of the date you received your supervisor’s decision. A management representative will respond to your appeal within ten working days of receipt of your appeal. If it is found that a company policy has been violated, management will take appropriate disciplinary action.

Procedure for Uinta Brewing Company Patrons

Uinta Brewing is a safe place for not only our employees, but our patrons as well. If a Uinta Brewing Company employee has made you feel unsafe, please reach out to Employee Experience at to discuss the incident.

If another patron is making you feel unsafe, find a Uinta Brewing Company employee and ask “Is Angela working today?” Our staff is trained to know that this is a call for help and they will assist you in a covert fashion. You will be taken to a safe location elsewhere in the facility where our team will work with you to make sure you are taken care of.


Uinta Brewing Company wants to be the best brewery we can be. It’s impossible to spell out every possible scenario we might face, so we must rely on one another’s good judgment to uphold a high standard of integrity for ourselves and Uinta. Sometimes, identifying the right thing to do isn’t an easy call. If you aren’t sure, don’t be afraid to ask questions of your manager or Employee Experience. Cheers.
