UNC System Policies for EHRA Employees

Policies for employees who are exempt from N.C.G.S. 126 (the North Carolina Human Resources Act) are called “EHRA” employees (“Exempt” from the HR Act). This includes university faculty and EHRA non-faculty staff. Policies for EHRA employees are under the authority of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors and are administered by the UNC System Office. All Board policies are available in the UNC Policy Manual. The links provided in the sections below are specifically related to human resources policies in the Manual.

Each UNC constituent institution has limited authority to develop policies and procedures, consistent with these policies, that are specific to their institution.
