Employee Relations


Employee Relations & Development Division is committed to promoting positive environments and relationships by focusing on good management practices and workplace behaviors.  Our goal continues to be a pro-active approach towards maintaining positive communication with employees, supervisors, and managers in order to minimize the occurrence of employee relations problems. When employee relations problems do occur, we can provide assistance and guidance from the onset of the problem through resolution.

We will work together to offer counsel and guidance within the framework of University policies and regulations, and State and Federal laws.  Our mission is to achieve an end result that is in the best interest of both the employee and the University.  We are here to assist you!     

Confidentiality: If you wish to discuss any matter in confidence, please be assured that we will maintain that confidence to the extent possible and consistent with legal requirements.  However, if the matter involves unlawful activity or conduct, or is critical to FAU operations, information may be shared on a need-to-know basis.
