As has been done in years past, a moratorium period for SHRA layoffs and EHRA Non-Faculty discontinuations will be instituted for the upcoming winter holidays.
SHRA employees should not have a layoff effective date from Monday, November 22, 2021 through Friday, December 31, 2021. Departments will be able to notify employees of a layoff until Monday, November 22, 2021, provided that the effective date of the layoff is January 3, 2022, or later. For layoff plans received and approved on or after November 23rd, the earliest notification that can be given to an employee will be January 3, 2022.
EHRA Non-Faculty Employees
EHRA Non-Faculty employees cannot have an effective date of discontinuation from Monday, November 22, 2021 through Friday, December 31, 2021. For individuals due a minimum of 30 days’ notice, departments may notify the employee of discontinuation until Monday, November 22, 2021, provided that the effective date is January 3, 2022 or later. For individuals due a 60- or 90-day notice, maximum consideration should be given to avoid providing notice of discontinuation during the moratorium period. However, given the extended period of notice in these cases, School/Division HR Officers may use appropriate discretion as to the specific timing of notifying these individuals.
All of the regular pre-approval requirements still apply for both SHRA layoffs and EHRA non-faculty discontinuations. Please carefully consider the timing of submitting these requests with these moratorium dates in mind. Exceptions will be made only in very limited and exceptional circumstances.
If you have any questions regarding these parameters, please feel free to contact your assigned Talent Acquisition Partner or EHRA Non-Faculty HR Consultant.
