  • Prevent Phishing Attacks

    This past year there has been an exponential increase in ransomware attacks across all industries and those specifically those targeting higher education. Most ransomware attacks start with a phishing email. Back to school typically coincides with an uptick in phishing attempts as attackers try to coerce faculty, staff, and students to give access to accounts or systems. Learn more about the common tactics used to phish email users.
  • Important Payment PAF Deadlines

    The deadline for One-time Payments PAF (Personnel Action Forms) and Faculty Additional Compensation PAFs is noon on Friday, August 13. Any requests sent after this deadline will not be paid on September 1, 2021. They will be processed for October 1, 2021.

    PAFs should be sent to HR at URHR@richmond.edu or via a Box folder. All PAFs should have appropriate electronic signatures for preparer and approver and should include required backup where applicable. Incomplete PAFs will cause a delay in processing payment.

    These PAFs are used to pay employees for services rendered outside their normal position. In order to expedite payment processing, if the employee is part-time, please complete Section 2 and indicate the exact days of the week they performed the services for which they are to be paid.

  • Leave policy & holiday changes now effective

    In order to streamline our processes and make our policies more accessible and easier to understand, the University has¿¿updated the holiday schedule and some of our leave policies. These changes are now in effect.

    We heard from employees that our leave and holiday policies were overly complex and made scheduling difficult.¿¿The updated policies are intended to be responsive to employee needs and give you more flexibility to use your benefits, as well as to make recruiting and retention more successful.
