The University of Alabama, Division of Finance and Operations

Workforce Reorganization Policy

Unit:  Human Resources
Contact: Susan Norton
Title:  Senior Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Chief Human Resources Officer
Effective Date: 8/13/2001
Revision Date: 11/12/2018



In times of business and/or financial necessity, the University must determine the priority for retaining academic and non-academic programs and services. The number and type of positions, the number of personnel, and the extent of funding commitment for the continuance of such programs and services are the sole responsibility and authority of the University and will be based on business necessity as determined by University officials and administration.


In the event of a reorganization that takes place within a division (i.e., Finance and Operations, Student Life, etc.), the University’s Department of Human Resources will make an earnest effort to assist Regular exempt and non-exempt classified employees who are being displaced. Efforts may include assistance in locating other comparable positions within the University community, if available; may provide resume’ referral services; and may provide referrals to career counselors on a case-by-case basis.


This policy applies to all faculty and staff.
