Staff Appreciation & Recognition (STAR) Award Program
This program provides a basis to recognize staff members for their achievements and outstanding contributions to the department, organization, and/or the campus. For eligibility criteria and program guidelines, please visit Campus Human Resources’ Staff Appreciation & Recognition (STAR) Plan Guidelines.
Pay for Jury Duty
Not all UCLA employees remain on pay status while serving Jury Duty. For a chart of pay eligibility, please visit Campus Human Resources’ Jury Duty at a Glance.
Pay for Holidays
Employees who work a variable schedule may be eligible for some hours of holiday pay. The holiday pay is calculated on the number of hours worked in the previous two biweekly pay periods prior to the holiday according to the Campus Human Resources’ Holiday Pay Table.
Eligible employees accrue vacation based on the number of working hours in the month (for monthly paid employees) multiplied by a leave accrual factor. For biweekly paid employees, the leave accrual factor is multiplied by the number of hours worked in a quadriweekly cycle (two biweekly pay cycles). The leave accrual factor is determined by the years of service and the Personnel Program/Group. For more information, please see the Campus Human Resources’ Vacation Employment Service Accrual Chart.
Vacation Use Waiting Period
In accordance with personnel policy or contract provisions, some employees may need to serve a waiting period before being granted the use of accrued vacation hours. To view a chart that outlines the employee groups, waiting periods, and policy references, please visit Campus Human Resources’ Vacation Use Waiting Period.
Employee Service Credit & Vacation Accruals Adjustment
Employment service credit determines service credit for the purpose of vacation accrual and service award eligibility. The University provides paid vacation leave to eligible staff employees who are appointed at 50% or more of full time for six or more months. The amount of vacation earned increases with the length of service. For more information, please visit Campus Human Resources’ Vacation Accrual & Service Awards.

ERIT (Employee Reduction in Time) Program
The Employee-initiated Reduction In Time (ERIT) Program is an optional tool that locations and organizational units may choose to implement as a cost savings resource. The ERIT Program provides an opportunity for employees to voluntarily reduce their current appointment percentage and corresponding pay so that the university can achieve temporary salary savings.
The ERIT Program has been extended beyond June 30, 2020. At the current time, the program is ongoing, and there is no planned end date.
For more information on the ERIT Program, please visit Campus Human Resources’ ERIT Program Overview.

This is a 1st time request from an employee or if there has been a break in the initial Contract.

Time Reduction Changes:
The time reduction under an ERIT contract may be changed during the term of the contract with approval by the department head and the employee and with as much advance notice as possible, but no less than 30 days. The effective date of the change is the first monthly or first bi-weekly pay-period of the month following receipt of the employee’s 30-day notice.
Participation may be terminated by the employee or the department head by giving as much advance notice as possible, but no less than 30 days, of intent to terminate the ERIT contract. The effective date of the termination is the first monthly or the first bi-weekly pay-period of the month following the 30-day notice. Advance notice of termination will be waived if an employee or department is faced with an emergency situation.
Special Situations — Time Off Pay Status:
Time off pay status, such as leave without pay or a temporary layoff, will not automatically terminate or extend an ERIT contract. These situations must be reviewed and processed accordingly.
