Human Resources and Equity

HR & E provides a list of policies that apply to all employees, including postdoctoral employees. On their site, postdocs can also find the links to the collective agreements between the university and CUPE 3902 Unit 1 (for all postdocs who teach) and CUPE 3902 Unit 5 (employee postdocs). This site also provides information on the Green Shield Benefit plan, which is mandatory for employee postdocs, and available to trainee postdocs whose funding is processed through the university payroll system.
