Maintaining Employee Information - Emergency Contacts

Employees have the ability to identify and/or modify emergency contact information via HRIS Employee Self Service. Please encourage employees to complete this important information to ensure that the department or HR may promptly respond to a medical emergency.

As a department HR liaison, you may also identify and/or modify an employee's emergency contacts using the Emergency Contact pages (pdf). Updating this information in either component (Employee Self Service or Emergency Contact page) will immediately update the other component after saving the data.  The information the employee provides is strictly confidential, to be used ONLY in an emergency.

October 1 Deadline for Unclassified Data Updates

Don’t forget to update unclassified data (academic rank, contract data, etc.), October 1 is the deadline.  Refer to July 18 HR Newsletter.
