Agreement to Arbitrate Claims

All newly hired or rehired staff employees and existing staff, who voluntarily transfer to new positions (voluntary transfers) or are promoted within the university into posted positions, are required to enter into a written Agreement to Arbitrate Claims (“Agreement”) as a condition of employment, transfer, or promotion. The Agreement does not replace the internal Staff Complaint Procedures, but rather provides for arbitration instead of court action.

This policy may be waived by the Associate Senior Vice President, Human Resources, for employees in bargaining units.
