FAQs

What are the benefits of the UT Law School Employee Recognition Program?

An employee is selected monthly and receives recognition from the Law School and their peers. All nominations are submitted to Human Resources and are added to the employee's personal file. In addition, the employee of the month is granted access to an F20 parking permit, which allows them to park in the Employee of the Month designated spot on Trinity for the month. In addition, starting in June 2012, the Employee of the Month will receive one day administrative leave. In addition, the Employee of the Month receives a congratulatory gift basket.

Starting in May 2012, the UT School of Law will recognize the Employee of the Year. The Employee of the Year recipient will receive a monetary award, three (3) days of administrative leave, and an award plaque.
