HR - Maintain Employee Data - Emergency Contact Information

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

This procedure is for HR Professionals within a division or campus who may have a need to update an employee's Emergency Contact information. This may be done while entering new hire information. If employees do not have access to a computer, input may be done for routine information update when corresponding documentation is received in the HR office.

PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS:
  • If there is more than one Emergency Contact listed, you will need to use the arrows to get to multiple Emergency Contacts.
  • A Primary Emergency Contact must be identified
  • Staff are encouraged to promote for employees to use Employee Self Service via My UW Portal pages.  By promoting Self Service this gives employees the knowledge to update their own personal information which suggests improvement in data integrity with reduction in mis-keyed information.
