Policies: Layoff for Reasons of Budget or Program

Last updated

Policy Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to provide an operational framework to be used by UW System institutions in the development of layoff procedures for university staff.

Policy Background

Wis. Stat. § 36.115(2) requires the Board of Regents and the UW-Madison chancellor to develop personnel systems that are separate and distinct from the personnel system under Wis. Stat. Chapter 230. Effective July 1, 2015, the layoff procedures contained in Chapter ER-MRS 22 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code and the procedures established by the Office of State Employment Relations are no longer applicable to current UW System university staff employees. Therefore, this operational policy provides the framework for layoff procedures for university staff with an expectation of continued employment at UW System institutions.
