Revision of Policy and Rules — Nonacademic, Policy 12 — Group Insurance Plan, Workers' and Unemployment Compensation
(15) Policy and Rules — Nonacademic, encompassing the policies applicable to civil service employees of the University of Illinois, is constantly under review to assure it is meeting the needs and requirements of the University. In some cases, these revisions lead to recommending changes not only to rules and regulations but also to University policy. Such changes to the policies contained in Policy and Rules — Nonacademic require Board of Trustees approval. Policy 12 This policy revision removes the specific definition of who is eligible to receive benefits and substitutes reference to the State Employees Group Insurance Act, by which eligibility is actually defined; the qualifying phrase reminding employees that such definition may be changed or modified from time to time has been added upon recommendation of the university counsel. In addition, the policy is updated to include reference to dental insurance.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, the revision of the Policy and Rules — Nonacademic was approved as recommended. By consensus, the board agreed that one roll call vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 16 through 33 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
