When to Contact HR

We encourage you to contact us when you have questions about employee relations issues, including:

  • Employment, such as hiring practices, salary, job classification, promotion, discipline, probation, and termination
  • University policy and its application to specific situations
  • Situations that involve discrimination in gender, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, or marital status.

The purpose of inquiries can be:

  • To solicit general information
  • To identify and discuss the issues involved
  • To consider alternative courses of action
  • To do something to resolve a specific situation.

Employee relations staff welcomes your calls or emails. Conversations are confidential and in most cases, you determine the outcome of the meeting and any future actions. HR staff can provide information, assistance and support. We can also help identify the range of solutions in a given circumstance.
