Technical Revision Related to PPSM 12


Re: Technical Revision Related to PPSM 12 – Nondiscrimination in Employment 

The Office of the President has released a technical revision to Personnel Policy for Staff Members (PPSM) PPSM 12 - Nondiscrimination in Employment. The policy revision provides consistency between University policy and the passage of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, which, among other changes, prohibits the use of genetic information in employment and the intentional acquisition of genetic information about applicants, employees and an employee’s family members.

The changes to section A of PPSM 12 are technical in nature and were made solely to bring the policy into compliance with legal requirements. The revised policy is effective immediately and supersedes PPSM 12 as issued on July 1, 2008. 

The revised policy is published online on At Your Service.
