    Anthem database breach and potential effect on health plan members 

    Health insurer Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Plan (Anthem) announced last week it was the target of a sophisticated external cyber-attack. As a result, its information technology system databases containing personal information of current and former members may have been compromised. The type of information accessed includes member names, birth dates, member health ID numbers, Social Security numbers, mailing and email addresses, and employment information. Thus far, Anthem officials believe that specific medical information and credit card numbers were neither targeted nor compromised. More information can be found on ETF’s website

    Overtime and compensatory leave policy

    The UW-La Crosse Overtime and Compensatory Leave policy as well as the UW System Compensatory Time policy became effective on January 1, 2015.  These policies affect the payment of earned overtime for classified (hourly) employees. If you have questions regarding these policies, please contact Human Resources.

    Hiring temporary office support staff

    Temporary office support staff are now hired through a temporary staffing agency under contract with the State of Wisconsin Bureau of Procurement. Supervisors should refer to the classified staff tab on the recruitment webpage for additional information.

    Emergency contact information  

    Is your Emergency Contact Information up to date? This information is imperative as we have had the need arise to contact a designee only to find no one is listed.  When medical or other emergencies come up, every minute counts.  Please help us help you out should the need ever arise.  You can update your information on your My UW System portal by clicking the "update my personal information" link or you may complete and return the emergency contact form to the Human Resources office.
