Campus Hiring and Salary Freeze
Due to the Berkeley campus budget impacts from COVID-19, the campus implemented a hiring freeze on all staff positions on April 1, 2020. Additionally, effective May 18, 2020, Chancellor Christ announced a one-year salary freeze on staff and faculty salaries. Both of these actions are in effect until further notice.
Hiring freeze: Limited exceptions to the hiring freeze may be requested for positions that fall under one of the following criteria: positions that protect against a significant business disruption and/or a significant health, safety, or compliance risk.
Positions that are fully or partially funded by central and gift funds are subject to the hiring freeze. Extramural-funded positions fully funded by contracts and grants are exempt from the hiring freeze, however these must be reviewed by the E&I Review team (as of 11/24/20).
Requests for exceptions to the hiring freeze are collected every Tuesday (5:00PM) on google sheet templates and reviewed by an E&I Review team. Those requests approved by VCEI Dania Matos are submitted to the campus Finance Committee for their decision.
Requests can be submitted on your respective L4 Hiring Freeze Request sheet:
Access to the google sheets are restricted to hiring managers and submissions require sign-off from their cluster FAs and AVC/L4 lead. [pdf]
For more information please refer to the campus COVID-19 Hiring Freeze FAQ.
Salary Freeze: The salary freeze impacts all base-building salary increase actions (including equity and reclassification) and is irrespective of funding source.
E&I Instructions for requesting an exception to the salary freeze [pdf].
