We recently announced the new Presidential Policy on Abusive Conduct in the Workplace to provide UC ANR employees notice of the new policy, procedures and training requirements. The Abusive Conduct Policy covers abusive conduct and retaliation by and against members of the university community in the workplace. The policy prohibits retaliation against any person who, in good faith, reports abusive conduct, assists someone with a report of abusive conduct, or participates in an investigation or other process under the policy.
The new UC Abusive Conduct in the Workplace training materials have now been released (DA-UCLOL0075-ECO). If you did not receive an email with the required training, please reach out to email@example.com. This training is required training for all employees and must be completed in the UC Learning Center within 90 days.
