Designation of Academic or Non-academic departments for hiring freeze purposes:

(June 16, 2014) Status of Non-Faculty Hiring Freeze

The Hiring Freeze Exception Request form, FAQs and other resources related to the Hiring Freeze announced May 9, 2014 have been updated.  The hiring freeze impacts budgeted staff positions except positions: (1) ADLOC'd to academic departments; (2) paid from restricted grant funds (Accounts 4XXXXX); or, (3) filled with an offer of employment prior to the effective date.

During the hiring freeze, vacant budgeted staff positions may be approved to post and fill by submitting the Hiring Freeze Exception form. Please read the Hiring Freeze Guidelines for full details.

To assist with the review process for exception requests, university executive leadership is requesting that an organizational chart, with the position highlighted, be included with the request form, along with justification related to the position's supervisory role. These changes were made in section II of the revised request form revised 6/16/2014.

In the meantime, the PATH online applicant tracking system remains available to departments. Human Resources will communicate additional information as soon as it becomes available.
