What is the process for resolving complaints?

(1) After making a reasonable effort to resolve a complaint with a social worker or licensor, a client, foster parent, or community member may contact the CA constituent relations office to request assistance.
(2) Constituent relations staff will assist the complainant in reviewing the complaint with the assigned social worker or licensor to arrive at a resolution.
(3) If the complaint cannot be resolved with the social worker or licensor, constituent relations staff will assist the complainant in reviewing it with the supervisor of the social worker or licensor for resolution.
(4) If the complaint cannot be resolved with the supervisor, constituent relations staff will assist the complainant in reviewing the complaint with the supervisor's area manager or regional manager for resolution.
(5) If the complaint cannot be resolved with the area manager or regional manager, constituent relations staff will assist the complainant in reviewing it with the area manager's regional administrator or the regional manager's office chief.
(6) If CA constituent relations staff determines at any time during the complaint resolution process that the administration's actions were consistent with agency policy and procedures based on complete and correct information regarding the complainant's situation, the constituent relations staff will terminate the resolution process and will close the complaint.
