Increase in Phishing Emails sent to UK Employees
Phishing is the malicious act of sending emails with the intent of gaining the user's private information for the purpose of stealing one's identity and stealing money. These phishing emails have been on the rise and can be used as stepping stones to launch further cyber-attacks against individuals and the University. 

New Independent Contractor Evaluation Form & Process
The University's Business Procedures Manual item E-7-3, which pertains to classifying workers as employees or independent contractors, was significantly updated on November 1, 2013. With this change, department hiring officials must complete a new form, Worker Status Evaluation Form, and obtain Human Resources' approval prior to any performance of work or service by an individual.
