The draft of the VCU Human Resources policy is now being revised based on the feedback we received during the open comment period. Though the open comment period is closed, you may continue to submit questions about the draft policy on the FAQ page. New questions and answers are posted here regularly. Thank you to everyone who reviewed the draft policy, submitted comments and suggested improvements during the open comment period.
Next steps: All comments and questions will be reviewed by HR Redesign committees so changes to the policy can be recommended. University Counsel will then review the recommended changes before a report is made to the board of visitors in May. Upon approval of the final policy, VCU Human Resources will develop procedures and guidelines to ensure the policy is managed as intended. We will spend the summer and next fall providing appropriate training to support the new policy and prepare for enrollment, which begins January 2018.
