Your complaint will go to the director of the department where you receive your services. Your director, or someone else, will contact you within 5 business days letting you know they received your complaint. Your director will then research your complaint and work to fix your complaint, hopefully within 10 business days.
If you do not agree with your director on how to fix your complaint within 10 days, then your director will continue to try more ideas to fix your complaint. This may take up to an additional 30 days.
PCL's decision on how to fix your complaint will be mailed to you, your guardian or legal representative (if you have one) and your county case manager. This letter will have PCL's decision in how we can best (or most closely) fix your complaint. If someone had submitted a complaint on your behalf, we will also let them know it has been resolved.
If you do not agree with PCL's way to fix your complaint or you are still not happy with PCL's decision, we can assist you in taking your complaint to the county where your case manager works. PCL staff will continue to provide your support or make sure that support is available to you until your complaint is heard and resolved or fixed by the county.
