102 - Establishing or Revising Human Resources Policy Guidelines

Subject: Establishing or Revising Human Resources Policy Guidelines

Section: U102

Date: June, 2014


To outline the process through which Human Resources Policies are established and revised.


The Human Resources Steering Committee (HRSC) – formerly the Personnel Policies Committee - appointed by the Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer (VP& CHRO), is an advisory group of University Human Resources leaders. As part of their role, the HRSC reviews and advises on appropriate human resources policies and practices for staff employees. When new or revised human resources policies are needed, they will be referred to the HRSC in draft form for study, discussion, and recommendations. The VP & CHRO has final approval of HR policies.

The University's Human Resources Policies will be maintained online. Changes to the Human Resources Policies will be communicated through HR Connect and directly to the HR Community throughout the year.


Employees represented by a bargaining unit may be governed by the appropriate bargaining unit agreement.
