Last year, the New Jersey State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) launched an innovative program – the NJWELL campaign – designed to provide financial incentives to enrolled SHBP members and their covered spouses or partners who engage in healthy lifestyle and wellness choices. This year, Rutgers University Human Resources (UHR) is partnering with the NJWELL campaign to bring two “Know Your Numbers” biometric health screenings on campus, in order to allow employees to participate in the program while also taking an active role in their future health and well-being. A biometric screening is a confidential health screening conducted by a nurse practitioner that measures numbers such as cholesterol, glucose, and body mass index (BMI). The entire screening takes about 15 minutes.
Representatives from the NJWELL campaign will be on campus for the following “Know Your Numbers” biometric health screenings:

The automated removal of payroll records is an established and necessary practice to ensure that the university meets its obligations with respect to accurate reporting of employment for the following purposes: Affordable Care Act, state health benefit plan eligibility, I -9, IRS, state pension and retirement system eligibility, unemployment, other federal and state employment regulations, federal and state reporting requirements, external audit reporting, and university access and security.
This is a reminder that in accordance with University Policy 60.3.14, Overtime/Comp Time for Regularly Appointed Staff, all earned and accrued Compensatory time must be utilized or compensated for in wages by the first pay period in June of every fiscal year.
As in prior years, no new compensatory time can be earned after June 5 through the end of the fiscal year (June 30). Overtime hours worked during this time must be treated as paid overtime.
In order to successfully hire Class 6 Academic Year Teaching Assistants and Graduate Assistants during the summer months as Class 5 Student Workers, please be aware of the following processes.
Updated BC-10 Form Checkbox Enhances Termination, Retirement, and Leave of Absence Request Templates
Effective Monday, May 18, 2015, enhancements to the HCM Termination, Retirement, and Leave of Absence Request screens will enable Preparers to identify when the BC-10 form needs to be given to employees who are separating, retiring, and/or placed on a leave of absence from the University. Preparers no longer need to hold these actions pending completion of the BC-10 form process and submit requests late. The new features include:
- Identification when the BC-10 form is required – After a Preparer enters the action and action reason, if the BC-10 form is required, two questions with checkboxes will appear below the action reason. If the form is not required, only the submit button will appear.
- On-screen guidance – If needed, the Preparer has messages and prompts to assist with submitting the request.
