UC's policy on supplement to military pay is scheduled to end on June 30, 2014. It is the University's desire to continue to provide reasonable assistance to academic and staff personnel who are called to active military duty in the Overseas Operations Contingency campaign. The proposed revisions renew the policy for another four-year period, effective July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2018.
Under the policy, the University provides eligible employees with supplemental payments equal to the difference between the employees' university base pay and their military pay and allowances until the end of an employee's active military duty, or until June 30, 2014, while on active military duty in the Overseas Operations Contingency campaign.
In addition, while employees receive the military pay supplement, the University continues to pay the UC contribution to their health plan premiums. For employees who are not eligible for the supplement to military pay because their military pay exceeds their University wages, and who elect to continue their University plan coverage, the University pays the UC contribution to health plan premiums. Benefits under the Policy are subject to a two-year lifetime limit.
The revised policy reflecting the proposed four-year renewal is posted at: http://ucop.edu/human-resources/_files/psmp-draft.pdf.

UCOP has submitted a proposed revision of the presidential policy on copyright and fair use for systemwide review and employee comment. You can access the revised policy at http://libraries.universityofcalifornia.edu/sscp/resources.
The 1986 Policy on the Reproduction of Copyrighted Materials for Teaching and Research has been totally revamped, and renamed the University of California Policy on Copyright and Fair Use.
Note that, in conjunction with the revised policy, a revamped and updated UC Copyright website (http://copyright.universityofcalifornia.edu) was launched in mid-February.

Staff Policy 35 – Uniforms and Safety Apparel is undergoing a formal review.
Under the provisions of Staff Policy 35, the University provides certain protective work clothing and safety equipment. The University also provides an allowance when an employee is required to wear specific clothing necessary for identification purposes or for other conditions requiring uniforms. The allowance is meant to cover the actual cost of the required uniform and will be funded from local resources.
Proposed revisions to Staff Policy 35 include:
- Title change
Title has been changed from former Protective Clothing, Equipment and Uniforms (originally issued in 1996) to avoid confusion with Environmental Health & Safety Policy Personal Protective Equipment, as referenced in Section VI.
- Delegation of Authority 2068 has been incorporated into policy
In accordance with the Office of the President’s Working Smarter Initiative, DA 2068 has been incorporated into PPSM 35: see (a) Section III.B. Authority (second paragraph) and Section V. Procedures (second paragraph). DA 2068 subsequently was rescinded.

The California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA) requires that employers of “mandated reporters,” as defined in CANRA, promote identification and reporting of child abuse or neglect. UC’s new policy related to reporting of child abuse and neglect will become effective May 25, 2013.
This policy describes the legal requirements that UC is obligated to implement and enforce. To help assure that any concerns of child abuse or neglect are promptly reported, the University is requiring internal reporting as well.
ANR employees who wish to provide comments on the proposed policy may submit them to Robin Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 24, 2013.
