Employee Relations

The role of Employee Relations is to provide guidance and counsel regarding personnel matters involving the USPS and A&P classifications in accordance with appropriate Collective Bargaining Agreements, HR regulations and policies.

The job performance of each USPS and A&P employee is to be reviewed (discussed) annually to ensure performance standards are met, to review the employee's position description (if necessary), to enhance communications, and to convey the supervisor's performance expectations for the coming year.

Using the USPS Performance Review Form, written appraisals of a USPS employee's job performance shall be conducted during the sixth month of the employee's initial probationary period with the University.  USPS employees in positions which have a six month probationary period will serve only one (1) probationary period.

Performance appraisals (A&P) (USPS) shall be conducted and turned in on the University wide performance review due date of February 15th. USPS and A&P employees whose hire date lies between July 1st and December 31st will be exempt from the Annual Performance Review immediately following their hire date. However, no USPS employee, regardless of their initial hire date with the University, is exempt from his or her initial 6-month probationary review.

Processing Off-Cycle Requests for Payment:

If for some reason an employee did not receive a paycheck on payday, an off cycle check request can be requested by the departmental payroll authorizer. Please be aware that a $50.00 fee per check request (maximum $500.00) will be charged to the department. If the error was a result of Human Resources' processing, the fee will be waived.

To request an off cycle check, please complete the Off Cycle Check Request Form. The applicable Timesheet and/or Leave & Pay Exceptions Report should be attached. 

Once Payroll Services has processed the payment, the employee will be notified via e-mail that the check is available for pick-up. Please note that all off cycle payments are processed in the form of a paper check.

Off cycle checks can only be requested and processed for the most recent pay period, and cannot include retroactive payments for a prior pay cycle.

Dual Compensation:

As stated in Regulation UCF-3.0032, the primary purpose of Dual Compensation is to pay a full-time employee for services performed outside of their primary job for a different department. Services that are performed above and beyond the employee's normal primary job functions within the same department cannot be paid as Dual Compensation. Exception: Faculty overload, which is a form of dual compensation, is governed by Academic Administration.

In this context, "full-time employee" refers to USPS, A&P, Faculty and Executive Service classifications with 40 standard hours per week.

(OPS employees do not qualify for dual compensation and should be hired via the ePAF.)

There is a guideline Dual Compensation ePAFs that explains how to create the ePAF for a dual compensation payment. Please continue to use the Request for UCF Dual Compensation Form, secure signatures, scan and attach to the ePAF
