Dispute escalation provisions

As part of a broader dispute resolution framework, escalation provisions gradually move the dispute to higher levels of authority. Each step, or tier, is designed to revisit the dispute if it has not been resolved by the previous step, and each step escalates the dispute to a higher level—generally to a person or department with greater authority in the organization.
