COVID-19: News and Campus Updates | Fall 2021 Plans

In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, employees in Human Resources are working remotely in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Visit our COVID-19 HR Guidance page for more information.

Welcome to Human Resources

Your UNC Human Resources office is here to support you throughout your career, from orientation to retirement and everything in between.

Equal Pay Act

The Equal Pay for Equal Work Act (EPEWA) went into effect January 1, 2021. For information on how UNC is implementing the provisions of this act, please visit our EPEWA page for more information. 


Anthem Settlement Information

You may have received or may soon receive an email or postcard notice regarding a settlement of class action claims involving the University’s health insurance carrier, Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield. The settlement may provide recovery rights to members of the UNC community. Based on the federal court’s orders regarding the settlement, Blue Cross Blue Shield is required to notify all potential claimants of the settlement and how they can file a claim.

UNC cannot answer questions or advise employees on what they should do in terms of the settlement. Employees are encouraged to visit the Blue Cross Blue Shield Settlement website to learn more about the settlement and determine whether they want to file a claim.
