UC Davis is committed to creating a supportive environment for each employee and administering all policies fairly and equitably.
Our policy is to minimize layoffs by considering staffing reductions only after other creative solutions have been reviewed. Departments should refer to the specific union contracts (collective bargaining agreements) and personnel policy for information about the process and requirements with regard to notice, severance, preferential rehire and recall. You can find the personnel policies for staff members here and the collective bargaining agreements here.
Layoff proposals are submitted electronically using a web-based form. Please read the instructions page before completing the layoff proposal.
If you have any questions or need help completing the online form, please contact your Employee Relations Consultant.
