SUBJECT: Information on Blink for Layoffs/Reductions in Time
The decision to lay off university staff is difficult for both managers and employees. The new Blink menu of layoff/reduction in time resources is a valuable new tool for the equitable, compassionate, and consistent application of layoff/reduction in time guidelines and procedures. See: http://blink.ucsd.edu/menu/layoff
Through the new Blink menu, supervisors can find answers to frequently asked questions, a layoff/reduction in time checklist, as well as information about:
* Types of layoffs/reductions in time,
PLEASE NOTE: Any supervisor who determines that a reduction in workforce is necessary should contact Employee Relations (ER) immediately. ER staff can facilitate the implementation of a reorganization plan and assist with the overall layoff process, notice obligations, rehire and recall considerations, communication issues, and workload issues for remaining staff.
The menu also contains information on layoffs/reductions in time for employees, including:
* Types of layoff/reductions in time,
