    Flu Shot Clinic

    UW-L employees and their family members are welcome to receive their annual flu vaccine on campus on Tuesday, November 11 in Port O' Call, Cartwright Center.  The clinic will run from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm.  Staff from Gundersen Health Plan and Health Tradition Health Plan will be available to give the immunization free of charge to those employees who bring their health insurance card.  Those employees not covered by either health plan may pay for the vaccine through Gundersen.

    Summer Leave Reports

    Academic year (9-month) employees who are working during the summer months are required to complete one leave report for entire summer.  An error caused a summer leave report for the month of June to be placed on the My UW System portal.  If you have a June summer report in your portal, you may ignore it.  All academic year (9-month) employees who are working during the summer should complete the summer leave report.

    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.
