1. Policy proposals being presented to Sr. Staff


Background Record Check Policy

Martha reviewed the recommendation for a Background Record Check Policy (BRC) by highlighting the plan, current practices, for whom, why and how to perform checks. She also shared whether and how our peer institutes are handling this policy.

Staff Council expressed concern about who would be responsible for processing and record keeping; there was a strong feeling this should be maintained by HR and that HR would have access. This policy will be presented to Sr. Staff with hopes that it will be in place by July 1st.

Additional Pay Policy

Another policy which is being presented to Sr. Staff prior to July 1 is the Administrative Additional Pay Policy. Martha read a preliminary recommendation on the policy stating that Administrative staff would not get paid for working any additional time on Campus. There may be a few exceptions which would need to be submitted and approved by HR prior to the work being performed.

Next scheduled meeting: June 15 @ 10:00 a.m., Paresky 220
