Hiring Staff Union & Non-union Positions

This information is for you, if you have:

  • A New or Replacement Recruitment
  • A pre-selected candidate and need to hire them into a Contract or Limited 900-hour position
  • Need to extend a Staff Appointment
  • Need to Reclassify a role

To Initiate Position Recruitments see steps below:

  1. Before you begin the hiring process for new and replacement roles or extensions, please review the current job description (JD). If this is a new position, or the JD has not been updated within the last year or you need the current JD, please reach out to Alicia Martinez.

    Please note, that any JD that has not been updated within the last year should be reviewed carefully, as processes, technology, and duties more than likely have changed. In addition, the JD may not contain the new diversity requirements or professional growth requirements and may contain language that is not considered gender-neutral. These details should be carefully looked at and reviewed before moving forward to post or extend.

    Please note that new job descriptions are built in Job Builder. Alicia is the owner of all JD’s in Job Builder for Haas, so please reach out before starting a new JD to see if an existing one is already set up for you to build on, and to receive step-by-step instructions on navigating through Job Builder.

  2. Once you have reviewed the JD and are ready to move forward, please submit the Haas FTE Justification form. The form will be automatically routed to your Haas Financial Analyst for verification, so please be sure to enter their name and email address correctly.  

Please be sure to complete all fields of the form. Incomplete data can delay the process.  Please be sure to provide a detailed explanation for the section  “Please describe the rationale for this request.” and “Please describe how functions/tasks/projects will be accomplished if this request is not approved.”  If your request is approved by Haas PC, those fields will be used to submit your request to the Campus Finance Committee. Incomplete or minimal details could result in a delay.

Information you will want to gather in advance before submitting the form [you can view 1-4 via UC’s People Card portal.  For the current salary of an existing employee, please check UCPath.  For minimum/midpoint pay, you can check TCS]:

  • Payroll Title [this is not the working title]:
  • Job/Title Code [this is a #]:
  • Position #:
  • Appointment End Dates [if applicable]
  • Salary/Hourly Pay [based on budget or Minimum / Midpoint pay:

Please note:  We are still in a UC Wide Hiring Freeze.  Positions will still need to be approved by the Haas Personnel Committee [PC] and sent to the Campus Finance Committee for review and approval.  The following are exempt and do not need to go to the Campus Finance Committee, but are still reviewed by Haas PC:

  • Positions funded by Contracts & Grants > this means that you are working with the Campus SPO Office and a PI to manage the contract and funding.  If this is not the case, the position is not covered by Contracts & Grants
  • Positions covered by Research Funds and the chartstring is coded under Chartfield 2.  Please check with your Haas Financial Analyst to confirm the chartstring, if you are unsure.
  • New Contract positions for 1 year or less and Limited Appointment Positions [900-hrs]
  • Career Replacements for vacant current positions
  • Renewal of existing Contract positions

To start the Haas PC review process, please submit the Haas FTE Justification form right away.   Although the above positions are exempt from the Hiring Freeze, these requests are still submitted through the FTE Justification form for review.

The Haas PC meets every other week.  Please reach out to Susie Jordan to confirm when they are meeting.

  • If the request does not require Haas PC or Campus Finance Committee approval, the Supervisor and Department Manager will be contacted by Alicia to begin the process.  
  • If the request does need to be reviewed by the Haas PC Susie will facilitate that process and you will be notified by Denise when approved.  
  • If the Haas PC has questions, you may be requested to attend the Haas PC meeting to discuss the request.  
  • If approved by Haas PC, the request will be submitted to the Campus Hiring Freeze Committee for review.  You will be notified once approved and will continue working with Alicia on the recruitment or extension process.

Reclassification Requests:

  • Reclassification of Career Position:  Please reachout to Denise Boyd to discuss the reclassification request. You will also need to complete the Haas Classification Review Request form.
  • Reclassification of Contract Position:  Please reachout to Alicia Martinez to discuss, as the process to “reclassify” a current Contract role is very different than a Career role.
