UCR Employee Relations (EREL) Code Chart


Title CategoriesDefinition under Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA)

Manager

Any employee having significant responsibilities for formulating or administering polices and programs

Confidential

An employee required to develop or present management positions for collective bargaining, and/or an employee whose duties normally require access to information which contributes significantly to the development of such management positions.

Supervisor:

An employee must supervise the appropriate amount of FTEs and have the appropriate level of authority for decision making in areas such as hiring, performance evaluation, work assignment, reclassification and merit opportunities, disciplinary actions and complaint/grievance resolution.The employee must not be on a short-term supervisory assignment and must perform work that is predominately different than those being supervised. At UCR, a supervisor designation requires the supervision of 2.0 career FTE, unless an exception is granted by Human Resources. For a definition of supervisor, refer to the Supplemental Guides for Supervisor Classes.

Non-HEERA Supervisor

Individuals who supervise less than 2.0 career FTE OR supervise casual-restricted appointments still need to be identified for training purposes. These individuals should be identified in PPS with a code of “S” in the Special Training Required field which is located in the EPER screen. Use the table below to determine the correct EREL code.
