2.1 REGULATIONS.
Iowa Administrative Code, Chapter 3, Personnel Administration, contains the rules governing the Regents merit system. For staff grievances the University has elected to use the procedure found in the Iowa Administrative Code, Chapter 12, [681]12.9(262) in appropriate cases rather than rule [681]3.129(19A). The majority of merit staff members are also covered by collective bargaining agreements which take precedence over Regents merit system regulations. (Refer to the current agreement for applicable procedures.)

2.2 MERIT SYSTEM STAFF.
Job descriptions are written for all merit system positions pertaining to job responsibilities, minimum qualifications, and pay schedules. The basic work week is forty hours. The departmental executive makes the selection of personnel for such positions subject to approval by the resident director of the merit system. The requirements of III-9.4 Affirmative Action Employment Guidelines must be met.
