UNC System Policies for SHRA Employees
Employees who are subject to N.C.G.S. 126 (the North Carolina Human Resources Act) are called “SHRA” employees (“Subject” to the Human Resources Act). This includes most but not all staff positions. Policies for SHRA employees are under the authority of the State Human Resources Commission and are administered by the Office of State Human Resources (OSHR). The UNC System Office exercises delegated authority for many SHRA policies as they apply to University employees and the UNC System constituent institutions.
Each UNC constituent institution has limited authority to develop policies and procedures, consistent with these policies, that are specific to their institution.
