All agreements must be approved as to legal form by University Counsel prior to execution unless the agreement is in a form previously approved by that office and is issued without revision. The release provisions of all settlements of separation agreement (employment claims), regardless of the amount of consideration, must be in a format approved by the General Counsel.
Each of you will provide the Vice Chancellor – Legal Affairs with a quarterly report identifying the employment claims settlements and separation agreements approved under this delegated authority. A report of settlements and separation agreements involving consideration of $50,000 or more must be transmitted to the Vice Chancellor, Legal Affairs for subsequent reporting to The Regents.
This delegation is being reissued due to the supersession of the parent UC delegation (UC DA 2214, issued 12/12/2008). The substantive changes to the delegation being superseded are the maximum dollar amount of the consideration that may be paid has increased from <$50,000 to <$100,000; specimen signatures are no longer required by the Office of Risk Services; authority to settle non-litigated separation agreements may be redelegated to the heads of Campus and Medical Center Human Resources. Any such redelegation of this authority shall be in writing with copies to me and those listed below.
