On July 1, a new state law takes effect that allows Tennessee’s public colleges and universities’ full-time faculty and staff, who have handgun-carry permits, to carry handguns on campus. To implement the changes, UT has adopted a new safety policy, which also takes effect July 1.
The new regulations mean that most employees paid less than $47,476 a year will become non-exempt Dec. 1, 2016.
The May 12 event celebrated the best of East Tennessee’s public relations community and the UT team received Awards of Excellence, Merit or Quality, notching awards for each of its entries.
Health insurance networks available to UT employees enrolled in the state of Tennessee’s ParTNers for Health program make it easy to find affordable in-network options.
All UT employees are encouraged to one small step toward better retirement prep and contribute more to their 401k and/or 457 plans.
