As of November 1, 2014, the UC San Diego policy on layoffs and involuntary reductions in time for non-Senate academics appointees (PPM 230-7) was revised to include instructions for layoffs and involuntary reductions in time for all non-Senate series.
There are revised responsibilities for layoff unit heads (department chairs and – for departments comprised of divisions or sections – division/section chiefs). Layoff unit heads are responsible for:
- Roster maintenance: the layoff unit will maintain a roster of all appointees in layoff status who were subject to a layoff/involuntary reduction in time by the layoff unit.
- The Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs’ Office will maintain the database from which this roster can be queried. Contact your Tier 2 analyst for assistance.
- Notice of Eligibility: The layoff unit must notify all appointees in the layoff roster of open positions within the layoff unit for which they may be qualified. Layoff units are encouraged to send a notice of eligibility to all appointees on the layoff roster within the layoff unit in the applicable series. (The notification requirement is not applicable to positions for which a waiver of an open recruitment has been approved.)
