Division of Human Resources

HR Toolbox

In Human Resources, our job is to support the needs of our university employees. Forms, documentation and other communication are essential to ensuring that you have access to the wealth of resources you need to achieve success.

The table below compiles forms, documents, guides and other useful information related to your role in the university, or the type of support that you need. The toolbox serves as a one-stop-shop, and divides the resources that you need under six distinct categories of information: benefits, employee performance, hiring, international support, policies and procedures, and training and professional development.

Workplace Issues

  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP) – A practical and confidential resource for permanent employees and their dependents. The EAP provides many different types of assistance such as counseling, legal assistance, financial and health and wellness services.
  • Integrity Line – If talking with your supervisor or other administrator is not an option in dealing with a workplace concern, the USC Integrity Line is an anonymous reporting system, administered by an independent third-party provider, Lighthouse Services, Inc., to report your concerns about questionable or unethical behavior. 
  • Grievances – There are laws, regulations, policies and procedures in place to provide covered employees an opportunity to challenge specific unfavorable employment actions they believe were issued inconsistently, improperly or not in accordance with University policy.
