Upcoming Changes to Mandatory Employee Training

As an employee of the University of Wisconsin, you are required by UW System policy to receive training on the following three topics:

      • Title IX (sexual harassment/sexual discrimination) – required training every three years
      • Information Security (securing data and information technology) – annual required training
      • Mandated Reporter (reporting of child abuse and neglect, Executive Order #54) – required training once after institution process is in place

In order to provide a more effective mandatory employee training program, we are moving to a centralized process for course delivery, compliance monitoring, and employee support for the trainings listed above.  With the implementation of the new process, you will no longer receive messages regarding these trainings from your institution’s Human Resources office (some of you may remember receiving messages from Jenny Charapata in combination with our training vendor LawRoom/EverFi).  Instead, you will receive messages from the email address.  There will also be a single point of contact for support for these trainings.  If you have questions or need technical support for these mandatory trainings, you can contact

During the week of September 21, all UW-Green Bay employees in active pay status may receive a message with one or more course assignments under the new mandatory training process.  Depending upon when you last completed the Mandated Reporter, Title IX, and Info Security courses (course assignment is based upon last completion date), will determine the date of your next course assignment. You will have 120 calendar days from receipt of the message to complete all courses assigned to you. Please note that our former President Ray Cross extended the typical 30 calendar day deadline an additional 90 calendar days (120 calendar days in total) in light of current extraordinary circumstances related to COVID-19.

If you have non-technical support questions regarding these trainings, please contact or 920-465-2390.

Reminder: Submit Leave Reports to Avoid Sick Leave Reduction

Faculty, Academic Staff and Limited appointees (who have or had an active leave-eligible appointment) are required to submit a leave report for each appointment, each month, whether or not leave is used.

Employees on a consecutive day furlough are required to enter leave reports while they are on furlough. If no leave was taken for a month a “No Leave Taken” entry should be made.

Failure to submit any leave report(s) will result in a reduction of your sick leave hours.

For the July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 fiscal year leave reports were due June 30, 2020. While June 30, 2020 is the preferred submission date, failure to submit all leave for the July 2019 through June 2020 fiscal year by September 30, 2020 will result in a reduction of employee sick leave hours. Even one unsubmitted leave report may reduce an employee’s sick leave balance.

Leave reports may be submitted electronically via the My UW Portal. To check for missing leave reports, follow these steps:
1. Log into the My UW Portal
2. Go to the “Time and Absence” module
3. Click on the “Leave Reports” link

Employees with missing leave reports receive monthly email reminders that lists their missing reports.
