Frequently Asked Questions

Will University of Wisconsin System employees still be State of Wisconsin employees?


All UW System employees have been and will continue to be State of Wisconsin employees with the State benefit package. The current personnel system for unclassified employees is administered by the UW System, but the personnel system for classified employees is administered by the Office of State Employment Relations (OSER). Effective July 1, 2013, all UW employees will have their personnel system administered by the UW System, and the State (OSER) will no longer have administrative purview over UW employees.
