Good to Know!

"Good to Know!" is a communication that Human Resources periodically sends to supervisors, managers, and other campus leadership.  Previous topics have included, but have not been limited to, the Fair Labor Standards Act, performance reviews, the Job Family Promotion Program, and the University's inclement weather policy.  Liaisons are encouraged to review these communications and share them with their departments or units as warranted.
