DONATED LEAVE FOR CATASTROPHIC ILLNESS

This policy has been broadened to allow donations of leave to an employee whose immediate family member has suffered a catastrophic illness or injury. The revision aligns with the university’s strategic plan and the other Regent Institutions. 

GDPR: COMPLIANCE WITH THE EUROPEAN UNION GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

The General Data Protection Regulation is a law that took effect May 25, 2018, in the European Union. The law protects EU citizens' privacy and increases the penalties for breaching people's online privacy. Iowa State University is both a controller and a processor of data from individuals in the EU. As such, the ISU community is required to comply with the GDPR. Failure to comply with the GDPR may result in large fines for ISU. For GDPR requirements and guidance, see the GDPR policy and the IT Security GDPR website.

AUTHORSHIP
