A great university
provides just and equitable compensation and financial incentives to all
employees, regardless of sex, race, sexual orientation, or family status.
- Conduct biannual
multivariate analyses for potential gender bias in salaries and wages
of all university employees and disseminate the results.
- Interpret federal
and state laws regulating the workplace compassionately and generously
for the benefit of all university employees.
- Provide benefits
that meet the varying needs and responsibilities of individual employees
through a “cafeteria plan” benefit package that includes at least:
- sliding scale
University contributions to individual and family health insurance
- all benefits
on a pro rata basis to permanent employees working less than full-time;
child care policy ensuring sufficient on-site childcare services
for all employees, including drop-in and sick child care;
- domestic partner
eligibility for all family-related benefits;
- optional application
of tuition credits at other state-supported postsecondary institutions
for employees or their immediate family members; and
- full range
of elder care benefits, including subsidized adult day care, access
to overnight respite care and home health services.
