HR Monthly Digest


Performance Appraisal Process and Timeline

The campus is moving the annual performance appraisal cycle for staff employees to conclude in March of each year. For 2015/16, staff employees will be evaluated in April 2016 for a nine-month review period (July 2015 through March 2016). Thereafter, employees will be evaluated April of each year for the 12 month period ending on March 31st.  The new appraisal cycle will apply to both represented and non-represented staff employees. 

The Chancellor’s Committee on Staff Compensation recommended changes to the performance appraisal rating scale, factors and forms. Those recommendations were approved and the new appraisal process/tools are currently in development. The new appraisal standards and tools will be introduced to staff in Spring 2016 and will apply to performance beginning with the 2016/2017 review cycle. Managers will be provided training in early 2016. 


Bargaining Update:  UC, AFT Extends Contract to December 10

The new December 10 contract extension will ensure lecturers can enroll in 2016 benefits during Open Enrollment, which runs through November 24. UC and the AFT will continue to negotiate over the key issues, which include compensation, post-employment benefits and appointments, with the goal of reaching agreement by December 10.
