    Section 1 : Complaints



    1.1 : Player Complaints



    A Player is anyone playing in the LGFA.



    Article VII has every complaint that can be filed against a player. Reference Article VII for that information.



    To file a player complaint, please visit the LG Action Center. The Action Center is located in the LGFA forums, below the leagues listed at the top of the website.



    1.2 : Management Complaints



    A Management team is made up of an Owner and Manager(s).



    Article VII has every complaint that can be filed against Management. Reference Article VII for that information.



    To file a management complaint, please visit the LG Action Center. The Action Center is located in the LGFA forums, below the leagues listed at the top of the website.



    1.3 : Owner Complaints



    An Owner who has no current management can also have a management complaint filed against him/her. They are responsible to ensure the duties of management are fulfilled until a new manager is hired.



    Article VII has every complaint that can be filed against an owner. Reference Article VII for that information.



    To file an Owner complaint, please visit the LG Action Center. The Action Center is located in the LGFA forums, below the leagues listed at the top of the website.



    1.4 : Staff Complaints



    A Staff is made up of a Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, Board of Governors, and Player's Association (President, Vice President, and Representatives).



    Staff are also considered players, thus a player complaint can also be filed against a Staff member. Please refer to Article II: Section 1.1 Player Complaints to file a player complaint.



    Article VII has every complaint that can be filed against Staff members. Reference Article VII for that information.



    To file a player complaint against a staff member, please visit the LG Action Center. The Action Center is located in the LGFA forums, below the leagues listed at the top of the website.



    If you wish to file a complaint on a staff member for their conduct you can do so also with the Action Center. All Staff complaints are only view-able by the commissioner.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    Section 2 : Filing a Formal Complaint



    2.1: League Complaint System



    The Complaint System is known as the Action center which is located in the LGFA forums below the leagues at the top of the page.


    There are four categories that complaints can be filed under :



    - Anything that happens during a game can be filed here.

    - Anything that is listed in Article VII that a Manager or player can not do can be filed here.

    - Anything Player Rights related

    - Any staff related issues that should be addressed to the Commissioner



    2.2 : Evidence



    Evidence must come in the form of:



    - Videos

    - Pictures

    - Directions to parts of the LG website where the complaint occurs and we can actively see it live or in the archives (Forums, Chat Box, any of our Systems, Admin Control Panel, etc.)



    The evidence needs to be clear, and match the violation you are submitting. It must clearly show a violation to Article VII : The Rule Book.



    2.3 : Submitting False Complaints



    Submitting a false complaint means you purposely filed a complaint, and forged or misled the evidence submitted. Please understand that if you submit a false complaint, this will result in a serious punishment handed out from the league.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    Section 3 : Judging a Complaint



    3.1 : Player Complaints



    Conduct related offenses (Chat box, Forums, or Website Conduct) fall under the ToS, and are judged by the Site Admin (red names) as well as the League Commissioner.



    All League/Game complaints for Players are handled by the Board of Governors (BoG).



    They come to a majority vote to either:



    - Warn/Suspend/Ban the Player (Guilty)



    - Veto the complaint (Not Guilty).



    They will come to this determination by analyzing the evidence, and applying it to what the rules state.



    3.2 : Management Complaints



    All complaints for Management issues are handled by the Deputy Commissioners. Most of these issues are automatically handled by our systems, but in the instance they are not, they will be voted on by the entire Commissioner’s Staff.



    3.3 : Owner Complaints



    All complaints for Owner issues are handled by the Commissioner. Most of these issues are automatically handled by our systems, but in the instance they are not, they will be voted on by the entire Commissioner’s Staff. They include any aspect of running their team, including their expectations and restrictions. Owners may be penalized for the same thing a Manager gets penalized for if the Owner is also to blame.



    3.4 : Staff Complaints



    Staff complaints include anything Staff is doing as a Staff member, and the work that is expected of that position. Any misuse of power or access is included as well. League Staff complaints are handled by the Commissioner of the league.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    Section 4: Appeals



    4.1 : Player Appeals



    An appeal is our way to make sure we have a fair and balanced system. Players can file appeals based off of having a decision of a complaint made against them.



    To file an appeal, you use the Action Center. There's an appeal section for you to appeal your complaint.



    An appeal may be filed, at his/her discretion, by the PA President on behalf of the Player.



    When the PA finds sufficient cause to file an appeal on the behalf of a Player, the ruling may be suspended temporarily while the appeal is processed.



    A suspended ruling will show up in a player's new feed as "Player Suspended". If an appeal is won, a notification will be sent titled, "Appeal Won". The "Appeal Won" notification will also show up in the player's news feed.



    4.2 : Management Appeals



    An appeal is our way to make sure we have a fair and balanced system. Management can file appeals based off of having a decision of a complaint made against their team, whether it is transactions, scheduling, or roster issues.



    An appeal may be filed in the action center and will be dealt with my the Commissioner's Staff.



    When the Commissioner's Staff finds sufficient cause to file an appeal on behalf of Management, the ruling may be suspended temporarily while the appeal is processed.



    A suspended ruling will show up in a managers new feed as "Manager Suspended". If an appeal is won, a notification will be sent titled, "Appeal Won". The "Appeal Won" notification will also show up in the Managers news feed.



    4.3 : Owner Appeals



    An appeal is our way to make sure we have a fair and balanced system. Management can file appeals based off of having a decision of a complaint made against their team, whether it is transactions, scheduling, or roster issues.



    An appeal may be filed, at the discretion of the Commissioner, on behalf of Owners.



    When the Commissioner finds sufficient cause to file an appeal on behalf of the Management, the ruling may be suspended temporarily while the appeal is processed.



    A suspended ruling will show up in an Owner's new feed as "Owner Suspended". If an appeal is won, a notification will be sent titled, "Appeal Won". The "Appeal Won" notification will also show up in the Owners news feed.
