Employee and Labor Relations banner

The Employee & Labor Relations Department is currently working with greatly reduced staffing. Requests for service will be handled as quickly as possible; however, during this time, our team will be prioritizing work to meet legal and contractual obligations and to mitigate risk to the University. We appreciate your patience and understanding. 

 The Employee and Labor Relations Office Provides assistance and advice to UCR managers and supervisors in the following areas:

  • Performance management/counseling.
  • Disciplinary actions, dismissals, release during probation, layoffs and separation of employees for medical reasons.
  • Administration and interpretation of collective bargaining agreements and relevant personnel policies.
  • Represents management in employee disputes/grievance proceedings.
  • Mediates/negotiates resolutions of complaints with employee representatives.
  • Administers unemployment insurance program.
  • Responds to union information requests.
