Faculty, academics, and staff need to identify themselves as employees of UC Irvine.

ENHANCED SERVICES
There are two elements to the UC1Re-employment Program.
The first element involves continuation of the employee's medical insurance coverage for an additional four months beyond that which would normally occur, unless specifically declined by the employee. The University will pay the employer portion of the medical insurance premium and the employee will be responsible for their portion of the gross premium, including any administrative fees. The Benefits Department is available for assistance in coordinating such additional coverage.

The second element establishes an additional incentive for managers filling vacant positions to give serious consideration to employees being laid off or to individuals already on the preferential rehire list. When a campus department hires such an individual, funding for one full month of the person's salary will be provided through centralized funding sources. This, coupled with the six-month trial employment period, not only provides a direct re­employment incentive but also recognizes the re-training costs often experienced by hiring departments. This incentive is available for UCI Campus-funded career positions filled by laid-off UCI Campus employees.

UCIMC No additional programs for TX employees. No RX employees at the
medical center.
San Diego There are variables in terms of what is offered based on the appointment type (MSP/PSS) and if the laid off employee selected severance or preferential rehire but here are some of the basics we offer all layoffs.

- Access to Mock Interviews/Video Interview

LBNL The Lab has a contract with an outplacement company, Torchiana, Mastrov and Sapiro. The standard is for employees affected by layoff to be offered a 4-hour session with TMS; the services will be tailored to the individual's needs (career counseling, resume writing, interview skills workshop, etc.). This service is paid for by the division and it is optional. In some cases, divisions choose not to offer it (this generally happens when the laid off employees are in scientific positions and the division doesn't feel the services TMS provides will be useful). There have also been situations in which a division has chosen to offer up to 30 days of career counseling to some individuals.
