Safety and Support

In the wake of Free Speech Week, HR wanted to share some helpful resources so everyone feels safe and supported on campus. These include:

Campus Safety Resources

Campus Support Resources

  •  The Employee Assistance Program provides informational handouts on a number of topics, including support following demonstrations of hate. Faculty and Staff are also welcome to call the program office at 510-643-7754 for more information or to seek support.
  •  The campus Division of Equity and Inclusion also offers information, support, and resources.

You can read the Chancellor’s updates and view the anticipated schedule of events here.

While our campus is committed to the right to free expression, our Principles of Community uphold a just community in which discrimination and hate are not tolerated.  We are committed not only to the Principles of Community, but also to upholding the

Workplace Violence Prevention Policy and the Workplace Bullying Prevention Policy.

Career Development Support

UC Berkeley and Berkeley Law support and encourage the growth and development of its employees. As you establish goals for the next year, remember to consider the resources available to support your success. Check out the HR website for information about paid time off, reduced fees, and free classes. Feel free to contact Trisha Milazzo in HR if you’d like help developing a plan.

Performance Evaluation Time Has Arrived!

Human Resources has begun sending information to Senior Managers and Directors regarding this year’s process. Some Senior Managers will be forwarding information about the process to the managers and supervisors who report to them.

The Berkeley Law HR homepage lists a number of training/webinar options that can assist employees and managers with the performance review process. You may also find these links helpful:

Tips for Managers

Please feel free to contact HR if you have any questions or would like assistance during the review process.

Managers and Supervisors: Please complete performance evaluations as soon as possible but no later than August 31st and email signed copies of your completed evaluations to Sheri or Trisha in HR.

​Performance Reviews & Annual Merit Increases for Staff​

​The annual performance review period is fast approaching for the performance period covering 7/1/16 – 6/30/17. Merit increases this year will once again be based on performance review ratings and will not be issued as a straight percentage across the board (i.e. 2% for everyone).

As was the case last year, all employees are required to have Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment training in order to be eligible for a merit increase. To check your status or that of your direct reports, log into the UC Learning Center.

All managers are required to complete a performance evaluation for all of their direct reports in addition to the Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment training in order to be eligible for a merit increase.

If you do not complete the Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment training by July 21st, your merit increase effective date will be delayed to the first day of month following the month in which you do complete the training and will not be retroactive. Anyone experiencing technical issues with completing this training, please see these FAQs.

HR will provide more information as it becomes available in the coming weeks.
