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 seven distinct categories of information: benefits, employee performance, hiring, international support, policies and procedures, security and system access, and training and professional development.

  • Request for Leave Transfer (P-72) [pdf] – Employees experiencing a personal emergency requiring time away from work for which they have no paid leave, may request leave from the Leave Transfer Pool. This form requires approval from the department head, the Division of Human Resources and the State Budget and Control Board. All requests must include an explanation of the personal emergency, and a brief leave history explaining the reason there is insufficient leave to cover the time needed.
  • Return From Leave Notification (P-73) [pdf] – This form must be completed when an employee returns to work, a personal emergency ends, or they are terminated from employment.


Employee Performance

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Integrity Line – If talking with your supervisor or other administrator is not an option in dealing with a workplace concern, the UofSC 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.
