Do you have questions or need to discuss an HR issue?  Please make an initial request using the VIMS Human Resources Request form: HR4U.

HR-Related Paperwork
  • Benefit forms, manual time sheets, and other HR paperwork can be scanned and emailed to me at [[v|vims-hr]].

  • Mondays from 9AM – 5:30PM
  • Other days as needed
  • Will come in to meet by appointment

I am available at other times between 8AM – 5PM via office phone at 804.684.7113.

New Cherwell Clearance Process

As of 7/1/2020, VIMS HR rolled out a new automated clearance process. It replaces both the clearance paper form & the PAF.

The process is initiated by a supervisor or Financial Officer/ Business Manager, with active participation from the employee.

Recruitment Process (New & back-fill /recruitment, with or without changes to positions)

Due to COVID-19, we have implemented a special pre-approval process before a position can be processed by VIMS HR.

If you are looking to create a new position or backfill a position, email [[v|vims-hr]] with the following information:

  1. One-sentence description of your program or lab
  2. One-sentence summary of why the position is mission critical
  3. One-sentence summary of implication if position is not filled.
  4. Existing position # if a current vacancy, or state the new position
  5. Proposed position title
  6. Index number

I will submit your request to Dr. Wells' Advisory Committee and be back in touch concerning their decision.

Note: please plan accordingly as it can take up to 2 weeks between my submission of your request and the Advisory Committee's response.

Employee Class/Comp Reviews

Reclassifications and market adjustments with increases are on hold until further notice. If there is a special circumstance, please email me at [[v|vims-hr]], and I will advise accordingly.
