New Procedures for Job Seekers

UGA Human Resources has implemented new online procedures for job seekers to apply for positions at the University of Georgia and for hiring departments to post position vacancies and review job applications.

This new system requires *all* job applicants to electronically submit applications, regardless of when they last submitted applications for vacant positions. Job applicants may attach resumes and cover letters, if desired.

For more information on how to apply for transfers or promotions, please visit the Employment Web site at http://www.busfin.uga.edu/employment/protran.html. New applicants can get information athttp://www.busfin.uga.edu/employment/approced.html.

Please contact Employment at 706-542-2623 or employ@uga.edu if you have questions about the new system.

Share Your Leave

The University began a shared leave process last year that allows employees to voluntarily donate sick or annual leave to other employees who have exhausted all of their sick and annual leave and, because of a medical emergency, are in need of additional sick leave. Visit http://www.hr.uga.edu/shared_leave.html for details.

When there are colleagues in need of leave it is sometimes difficult or awkward to get the word out about it while still protecting their privacy, and while not making potential donators feel any obligation to donate. To help communicate about colleagues in need, it has been suggested that Libraries’ HR maintain a list of employees who would like to be notified when a colleague is in need of leave.

This list would remain private and only used by Libraries’ HR. With permission of the requestor, Libraries’ HR would use this list to alert potential leave donors that there is an eligible person in need of leave and of the procedures to donate.

If you would like to be kept on a private “potential donor list” that is maintained in Libraries’ HR, please send your name to Libraries HR at libjobs@uga.edu. Remember you are under no obligation to donate your leave at any time. We will periodically update this list and you can remove your name at any time.

Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual

A handy reference tool is the Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual (http://www.busfin.uga.edu/manual/).


In accordance with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993, an eligible employee may be entitled to up to 12 work weeks of leave during any 12-month period for a qualifying event (qualifying events are listed in the guidelines linked below). Take note, if you are taking approved leave for a qualifying event for longer than three days, that leave must be granted under the FMLA guidelines, counted as part of the 12 weeks of granted leave, and special FMLA paperwork must be completed.  Read over the guidelines and paperwork required at UGA HR website, http://www.hr.uga.edu/fmla/fmla_intro.html .
