RE: Redelegation of Authority - Damage Payments for Services Performed Before Signing Loyalty Oath

It is the policy of the University to make payment in the form of damages to a University employee who, without knowledge of State loyalty oath requirements, performs services for the University prior to signing the oath. A damage payment constitutes settlement of a claim by an employee based upon University negligence, and is not compensation for services rendered.

Damage payments for services performed before signing the Loyalty Oath may be claimed provided all of the following conditions are met:

  1. The employee entered into University employment in good faith, with no knowledge of the oath requirement.
  2. The employee would have executed the oath prior to commencing University employment had the University advised the employee of the requirement to sign it.
  3. The employee did, in fact, sign the oath upon learning of the requirement.

The authority to approve claims for damage payments is delegated to Executive Vice Chancellor for academic employees; to Vice Chancellors, Academic Deans, and the Executive Director, UCI Medical Center for Management and Professional Program employees; and to the Assistant Vice Chancellor-Human Resources and the Assistant Director, Human Resources for Professional/Support Staff and Managers/Senior Professional Staff employees.

Any redelegation of this authority should be in writing with copies to the list below.

Any claim covering a period of 120 days or more must be approved by the Chancellor.

This supersedes the December 1, 1995 delegation of authority, IDA083, from Chancellor Wilkening on the same subject.
