Employee Relations Support

UTSA encourages fair, efficient and equitable solutions for problems arising out of the employment relationship while maintaining high standards for employee conduct and performance and meeting the applicable requirements of state and federal law.

While effectively identifying and correcting unacceptable work performance and conduct through progressive steps is encouraged, UTSA reserves the right to determine the appropriate level of disciplinary action based on the seriousness and gravity of the employee’s conduct or work performance.

Please partner with your HR Business Partner regarding workplace related concerns to ensure appropriate next steps are taken and supports are provided. You may also submit a concern to the HR Business Partner team through our online People Excellence Concern form.
