UC sets policies for drones and independent contractors, seeks comments on military pay supplement
UC has opened the employee comment period for the Draft Revised Presidential Policy on Supplement to Military Pay. The university also announced that two new policies have been published regarding unmanned aircraft systems, also known as drones, and independent contractor guidelines for tax purposes.
Employee comments sought
The university invites comments on the Draft Revised Presidential Policy on Supplement to Military Pay – Four-Year Renewal, as described below:
The proposal provides eligible employees with supplemental payments equal to the difference between the employees' University pay and their active military duty pay for a period not to exceed the employee's tour of active military duty, until June 30, 2022, or until the separation date of an employee's University appointment, whichever comes first. Benefits provided under the Policy are subject to a two-year lifetime limit. The proposed revisions renew the current Policy for a four-year period, effective July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2022. The Presidential Policy on Supplement to Military Pay applies to all university academic and staff employees.
The Policy proposal is posted under the “Systemwide Review” tab at: http://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/academic-personnel-policy/policies-under-review/index.html.
If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Monday, May 7, 2018.
