The University of Wyoming is committed to an environment where open, honest communication
is the expectation, not the exception. The link above provides you with an optoin
to easily and safely file a report regarding your concerns.
Additionally, the link above provides you with various degrees of confidentiality
and/ or anonymity. Report a concern regarding conflicts or disputes; get assistance
with corrective and disciplinary actions; get assistance with policy interpretation
or performance management.
Performance management refers to the process of bringing out the best efforts of people and directing those
efforts toward meeting the goals of the University and respective units/departments.
It includes management of UW's Performance Cycle, Feedback, Annual Performance Evaluations,
and Goal Management.
Corrective action & Disciplinary action are the processes used to identify and correct the poor performance or undesirable
behavior of employees. The objective of these actions are to improve performance of
or eliminate undesirable behavior and provide employees with a fair and just process.
The conflict and dispute resolution process is for employment matters that are not corrective action in nature or that
involve allegations of discrimination, harassment, or incidents of threats of workplace
violence. For issues of allegations of discrimination or harassment based on a protected
status or incidents of threats of workplace violence please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity Report and Response.
The implementation of Flexible Work Arrangements can offer an important approach to meeting the operational needs of the University
of Wyoming and supporting the needs of university employees.
University employees that are resigning or retiring from their positions are encouraged
to review the Leaving Employment Page. This page will guide employees throught the steps to take when preparing to leave
the University, including the organizations they must contact. Exiting employees have
constructive feedback they can provide the University and Human Resources encourages
them to fill out an exit interview. Please know this feedback is valued!
The process of eliminating an occupied position from a Unit or Department is a position elimination. This process will look different for different types of employment classifications,
as certain classifications are granted specific rights by the University Employee

Staff employees serving probationary periods are considered at-will employees during
the term of probation and may be terminated without cause and shall have no right
to appeal. The probationary period may be either extended or reduced for a period
of up to six months when the responsible Vice President determines that such extension
or reduction would be in the best interest of the University. If a department has
a need to reduce or extend a probationary period, please contact Employee Relations or call 307-766-2438.

focus on why perhaps you can, and be one of the exceptions."
