The Board should speak with the administrative staff and employees separately to determine the issue and figure out a way to resolve the employees grievances. Alternatively, the Board can delegate this duty to the CEO or President to resolve the issues. Those are the two options with the goal of resolving employee grievance issues before they become major issues affecting the entire organization.
