PREA Standard 115.52 (a) and (b) use the language “grievances regarding sexual abuse” or “grievances regarding an allegation of sexual abuse.” What constitutes a grievance “regarding” sexual abuse or an allegation of sexual abuse?


For Standard 115.52 (a) and (b), a grievance regarding an incident or allegation of sexual abuse is any grievance that is about a potential or past incident, or allegation, of sexual abuse. A grievance that alleges a fear of imminent sexual abuse, a grievance that alleges an incident of sexual abuse, or a grievance that alleges the mishandling of a report of sexual abuse are all grievances “regarding allegations of sexual abuse.”
