Confidential Employees

The Collective Bargaining Unit Codes for employee categorized as "confidential" differ from those for the "non-confidential" employees.

A confidential employee means an employee who is required to develop or present management positions with respect to meeting and conferring or whose duties normally require access to confidential information which contributes significantly to the development of such management position.

The confidential codes may only be used for employees that meet the definition of "confidential employee" as it is stated in the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA) of 1978.

Collective Bargaining Unit Codes:

  • B = Confidential Manager
  • D = Confidential Supervisor
  • F = All Other Confidential

If you have any questions regarding the use of Collective Bargaining Codes, please contact Compensation Services for clarification. It is critical that these codes be correctly determined and accurately entered into the payroll/personnel system.
