In an effort to address the budget deficit facing the University as a result
of the State of California budget crisis and other budget reductions, UC is
offering a new Staff and Academic Reduction in Time (START) program. As in
the past, START is one way to help UC cope with budget cuts in an attempt to
minimize the need for layoffs.
START is a temporary, voluntary program in which eligible employees may, with the approval of their department, reduce their working hours and corresponding pay between 5 and 50%. START participants, who must remain on pay status at least 50% of full-time each month while on START, continue to accrue vacation, sick leave and UC Retirement Plan service credit at their pre-START accrual rate.
