Employment Practices Improvement Committee (EPIC)
Employment Practices Improvement Committee (EPIC) is a systemwide committee made up of professionals in risk, human resources, legal, and compliance and audit, whose mission is to reduce the number of employment practices claims and improve the working experience for university faculty and staff.
This committee uses employment practices claims and complaints to take a targeted approach to training by reviewing loss data, comparing it to departments and locations which had the most frequent loss experience and analyzing the data for trends. Upon discovering a particular trend, EPIC works with the campus and or systemwide departments to provide training programs to university managers, supervisors and employees.
