Candidate Eligibility

All candidates for positions on the executive board will be vetted by Human Resources to ensure their eligibility. This review will be conducted in the strictest confidence.

All candidates must meet the criteria set forth in Section 3 of the Staff Assembly guidelines.

Any career staff employee who has completed one year of employment at UCR, and who has successfully completed a review by Human Resources (outlined herein below) is eligible to serve as an officer of the Staff Assembly; however, the positions of President, Vice-President (President-Elect) and Immediate Past President may only be held by a non-represented employee.

The Human Resources review process is designed to ensure that all candidates must be employees in good standing with the University in order to run for Staff Assembly. Human Resources will review the list of nominees, and indicate if any of the candidates are ineligible to serve for the following reasons:

1) going through severe disciplinary action,
2) have received performance review marks of anything below "Successfully Meets Performance Expectations" in the two years prior to running, etc.

NOTE: If the employee has not been working at UCR for more than one year, she/he is still eligible to serve, provided that no disciplinary concerns or less than "Successfully Meets Performance Expectations" scores exist on any existing reviews.
