This grievance section shall not be available to determine complaints related to position placement on the salary schedule, results of performance evaluation, notice of noncontinuance, termination not for cause, salary determination or disability separation.
 
(2) The grievance procedure is open to all exempt employees regardless of type of appointment or length of service to the university and no employee shall be discriminated against nor shall there be any penalty or reprisal on account of having filed a complaint in accordance with this procedure.
