Employee / Labor Relations
Employee Relations (ER) provides education, training, mentoring and guidance to individual employees, supervisors, managers and administrators to address questions and workplace issues for non-Faculty employees.
Our services include, but are not limited to:
- ER Consultants work with department administrators and individual employees on effective employee-manager communications
- Individual coaching to improve employee performance and resolve conflicts and problems before the point of formal corrective action and grievance.
- Advise on and interpret university policies, procedures, regulations, labor contracts, and key state statutes and federal laws
- Oversee the university layoff, progressive discipline, performance improvement plan, and non-reappointment processes.
Refer to USF Regulations or USF Policies on many ER topics, as well as for information on specific Faculty-related employee relations procedures and programs.
