Wis. Admin. Code Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System § UWS 12.03 - Individual layoff decision
Current through March 28, 2022
When a reduction in program of a particular operational area is required, layoffs of academic staff members with indefinite, fixed term, or probationary appointments should normally follow seniority. This presumption in favor of seniority may be overcome where program needs dictate other considerations (e.g., the need to maintain specific expertise within the program or operational area). The standard notice periods specified in s. UWS 10.05 should be used, unless there are compelling reasons to the contrary (e.g., almost immediate cutoff of funds), for layoff of probationary and fixed term appointments under this chapter. Indefinite appointees shall have 12 months' notice of layoff for reasons of budget or program, unless there are compelling reasons to the contrary.
