An email sent Wednesday, February 17, 2010 titled “Urgent That You Use Current UT Personnel Policies” from Vice Chancellor Al Hooten and Human Resources Director Phil Bright rescinded all printed personnel policies and work rules, and directed supervisors to only use those policies and procedures found on the UT website.
