UC Regents Rethink Hiring Rules After Scandal



When UC Berkeley rehired its police chief immediately after she retired, the story infuriated lawmakers and members of the general public. After all, top cop Victoria Harrison got her $2.1 million retirement package up front, got another payment of $552,000 over ten years, and was rehired with a six-figure salary. Now, embarrassed members of the UC Regents plan to clarify rules about when and how retired employees can go back on the job, in order to satisfy a public already inflamed by university compensation scandals. Under the new rules, retired employees could only come back for a year, and must work part-time. Of course, it's too late to do anything about Victoria Harrison's deal.
