Human Resources today (Oct. 5) announced a Voluntary Separation Program, or VSP, for career, policy-covered (nonrepresented) staff and other staff members in any of six bargaining units, and who work for the Davis campus, School of Medicine or Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing.
Under the VSP, severance pay may be available to eligible employees who voluntarily elect to leave their jobs. The bargaining units that are included are Clerical (CX), Service (SX), Patient Care Technical (EX), Research Support (RX), Technical (TX) and Health Care Professionals (HX).
The VSP is not available at the UC Davis Medical Center due to operational factors. Also ineligible: senior managers, academic titles, and positions funded by grants and contracts.
Applications are due as soon as possible but no later than Nov. 10 to direct supervisors. A department must be able to demonstrate permanent salary savings that justify the payment of severance. Voluntary separations under this program are subject to approval by department head, dean or vice chancellor/provost (or equivalent position), and Central HR. Approval will be determined based on the university’s operational needs.
Human Resources will communicate approvals or nonapprovals by Nov. 25. Employees must separate between Dec. 14 and Jan. 15, 2021.
