[July 3, 2012]
The voluntary Employee-Initiated Reduction in Time (ERIT) Program and the policy on Supplement to Military Pay have been renewed for two more years through June 30, 2014.
ERIT allows career staff — except senior management group members — to voluntarily reduce their work hours and pay to help campuses save money in this tough budget climate. In exchange, employees receive certain advantages, such as accrual of vacation and sick leave at their pre-ERIT rates.
Each UC location will decide whether to offer ERIT to employees. Interested employees can contact their department supervisor or local Human Resources Office to ask if ERIT is offered at their location.
UC also renewed its Supplement to Military Pay policy to continue its support of employees called to active military duty in certain military campaigns.
The university will compensate eligible employees for the difference between their university base pay and military pay and allowances until the end of an employee’s active military duty or until June 30, 2014, whichever comes first.
Those not eligible for supplemental pay because their military pay and allowances exceed their university wages can continue their health plan coverage while on military leave. The university will continue to pay the UC contribution to those plans.
This policy is offered systemwide at all locations.
ERIT and the Supplement to Military Pay policy were scheduled to expire on June 30, 2012. Both were renewed following a 30-day employee comment period.
Employees can learn more about ERIT and the Supplement to Military Pay policy, including how to enroll, on the At Your Service website or by contacting their local Human Resources Office.
Both ERIT and the Supplement to Military Pay policy are subject to collective bargaining for represented employees.
