Scope

This policy applies to all University employees, including student workers, and to all Designated Campus Colleagues (DCCs).

Policy

The University of Arizona is committed to creating an effective, safe, and secure environment for those who live, learn, and work here. Toward that end, the University may exclude from future employment or professional affiliation former employees or Designated Campus Colleagues (DCCs) whose separation from the University occurred under any of the following circumstances:

  1. Termination of employment or DCC relationship as a result of a University or Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) policy violation; or
  2. Resignation, retirement or voluntary termination of a DCC relationship in lieu of involuntary termination as a result of a University or ABOR policy violation; or
  3. Resignation, retirement, or voluntary termination of a DCC relationship when consideration of termination is pending as a result of a University or ABOR policy violation; or
  4. Separation during the course of an investigation of a University or ABOR policy violation.

Additionally, the University may exclude from future employment or DCC relationship a former employee or DCC whose separation from the University occurred for any reason if the University discovers after the individual's separation that the former employee or DCC violated a University or ABOR policy.

Compliance and Responsibilities

Notification and Review Process

On behalf of the University, the Vice President for Business Affairs and Human Resources (VPHR) will notify the former employee or DCC in writing within thirty (30) business days after the individual's separation from the University (or thirty [30] business days after the University’s post-separation discovery of a policy violation) that the individual will be ineligible for reemployment or future engagement in a DCC relationship at the University.
