Review and Approval Process
ERIP-2013 is designed to achieve specific enterprise outcomes:
- Reduction in salary/wage and associated benefit costs
- Redirecting positions to focus on higher priorities
Voluntary separations under the ERIP-2013 may also avoid or minimize future involuntary terminations due to reductions in personnel.
While Indiana University would like to allow as many eligible employees to participate in the ERIP-2013 as possible, the University reserves the right to deny participation to eligible employees if it is determined that an application does not meet the above institutional objectives. ERIP-2013 applications will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
- The units demonstration that one or more of the above institutional objectives will be accomplished
- The unit’s ability to fund ERIP-2013 Separation Incentive Benefits
Applications and unit plans will be reviewed during September 2013, and applicants will be notified whether or not their ERIP-2013 application has been approved.
Indiana University cannot guarantee that every application to participate in the ERIP-2013 will be approved.
University Human Resources will first review the ERIP-2013 application to confirm the employee’s eligibility to participate.
ERIP-2013 applications require the following approvals:
|IUB or IUPUI Campus|
|UA units and IU School of Medicine|
If the Initial Reviewer approves the application, then he or she is responsible for providing a statement demonstrating how the ERIP-2013 separation will meet the enterprise outcomes, including a statement explaining how any planned replacement will also meet those objectives. Any reviewer may deny the ERIP-2013 application.
If the Initial Reviewer disapproves the ERIP-2013 application, the employee may request reconsideration by that reviewer, who may approve the ERIP-2013 application or uphold the initial decision. There is no further consideration if the Initial Reviewer upholds the initial decision.
Final approval of the ERIP-2013 application is required by the President's Office.
No ERIP-2013 is final until approved by the President’s Office. Again, Indiana University does not guarantee that every application to participate in the ERIP-2013 will be approved.
Indiana University’s implementation of ERIP-2013 will not discriminate against any person because of age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status, and will comply with all federal and state nondiscrimination, equal employment, and affirmative action laws and regulations.
