As a CSU employee, you have the opportunity to participate in a variety of benefit programs. We offer a comprehensive program of benefits that include health, dental, vision, life, disability, long term care, personal insurance, savings bonds, tax sheltered annuities, a fee waiver program and many others miscellaneous benefits.

Classification & Compensation

The Classification/Compensation program concerns matters pertaining to job classifications and wages/salaries for non-faculty positions. This includes requests for reclassifications, classifying open jobs before they are posted, promotions, and department reorganizations where individual responsibilities are changing. The program manager is responsible for reviewing proposed salary changes and starting wages/salaries before they are offered to employees in hiring situations, and for making recommendations on pay rates in general. The program manager also reviews and consults on all non-faculty job advertisements before they are published.

EEO & Diversity

The university welcomes and embraces a diverse community encompassing an array of human qualities and varying personal and professional experiences. The Human Resources Department promotes Equal Employment Opportunity without regard to age, ancestry, color, creed, marital status, medical condition, national origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation or belief, pregnancy, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.

The Human Resources Department works with clients to attract, develop, and retain a qualified and diverse work force in an environment where discrimination and harassment is not tolerated. The Department takes all claims of discrimination and harassment seriously and attempts to remedy such claims in accordance with university policy and federal and state law.

Employee Assistance Program

Our Employee Assistance Program is designed to maintain and enhance the health, well being and performance of our employees. In recognition of the reality and impact of personal issues and health concerns on our employees, EAP services are dedicated to supporting and strengthening the university’s mission through the provision of programs and consultation focusing on prevention and education.

Employee & Labor Relations

The Employee Relations program has the goal of identifying and resolving workplace concerns and issues in an expeditious manner and in accordance with university policy and state and federal law. The Human Resources Department encourages all employees to present such issues to their managers or to the HR department if the matter cannot be resolved at the lowest level. HR Generalists consult with managers and staff members and attempt to mediate and resolve their issues.

The Human Resources Department encourages cooperative and productive relationships with various unions on campus. The Labor Relations program includes providing leadership and support for collective bargaining, administering and supporting implementation of negotiated contracts, processing grievances, interpreting labor agreements and providing professional development for supervisors. The Human Resources Department interprets and administers for its clients each of the staff collective bargaining agreements (except for agreements governing academic personnel in Units 3 and 11, which are administered by the Provost’s Office). The Human Resources Department also oversees the grievance procedure and, where applicable, the complaint procedures contained in the collective bargaining agreements in an effort to resolve matters quickly.

Employment & Recruitment

The Employment and Recruitment pages provide useful information for those seeking employment and managers engaged in the recruitment process. You will find easy access to career opportunities at Fresno State, with additional links to Faculty, Student and Auxiliary employment pages.

The Employment pages include access to a variety of policies and handbooks related to on-going employment with the university. Included are the New Employee Handbooks for staff and managers, the Athletic Corporation Handbook, New Employee Orientation materials, and important links to related system wide policy.
