Employee comments sought on proposed revisions to nondiscrimination policy
The University of California invites comments on proposed revised presidential policy on nondiscrimination and affirmative action regarding Academic and Staff Employment and Proposed Revised Academic Personnel Policy Section 015, The Faculty Code of Conduct (APM - 015).
Proposed revisions modify language to comply with:
- California state law (AB 1433), by extending nondiscrimination and nonharassment protections to individuals applying for or engaged in positions as “volunteers, unpaid interns and trainees;”
- the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) Pay Transparency Rule, prohibiting certain employers from discharging or discriminating against employees and job applicants for discussing, disclosing or inquiring about compensation; and
- amendments to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), requiring employers to develop and distribute anti-harassment and discrimination policies with certain required elements.
The proposal is located on the UCOP Academic Personnel and Programs website, “Policies under review,” under the “Systemwide Review” tab at http://ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/academic-personnel-policy/policies-under-review/index.html.
