Proposed Amendments to The General Rules Concerning University Organization and Procedure
(6) Amendments to the General Rules are proposed for the following sections: Article IV, Section 1 — Terms of Employment of Academic and Administrative Staff Article IV, Section 4 — Retirement, Death, Survivor, and Disability Benefits Throughout General Rules — substitution of gender-neutral language Two changes to Article IV, Section 1 are proposed. Since the Chicago campus is no longer on the quarter system, reference to the quarter system in Article IV, Section 1(a) of the General Rules is no longer needed. Also, Section 1(1) of Article IV is being amended to remove the requirement that employees "present evidence of freedom from tuberculosis or immunity to smallpox." State law no longer requires us to conduct tuberculin testing of employees. Furthermore, smallpox has been considered an eradicated disease since 1977. Legal counsel recommends the change in Article IV, Section 4 which replaces the term "disability" leave with the more appropriate "sick" leave. Disability benefits are administered by SURS, and eligibility is fixed by State statute. On the other hand, sick leave is administered by the University, and eligibility is fixed by the General Rules. In addition, several modifications are proposed to make the General Rules gender neutral.
