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.
ER Consultants work with department administrators and individual employees on effective employee-manager communications and provide individual coaching to improve employee performance and resolve conflicts and problems before the point of formal corrective action and grievance.
ER Consultants advise on and interpret university policies, procedures, regulations, labor contracts, and key state statutes and federal laws and oversee the university layoff, progressive discipline, performance improvement plan, and non-reappointment processes.
Our services include:
- Performance management
- Complaint resolution and conflict mediation
- Counseling and formal discipline
- Collective bargaining agreement compliance
- Grievance procedures
- Applicable alcohol/drug testing (pre-employment and regulatory)
Refer to USF Regulations or USF System Policies on many ER topics, as well as for information on specific Faculty-related employee relations procedures and programs.
