Within six months, the Chancellor's Office should revise its policy to clarify when campuses need to obtain indemnifications from management personnel who will be on paid administrative leave and should begin monitoring campuses to ensure that they are adhering to its policy.
6-Month Agency Response
The Chancellor's Office has drafted a revised policy to clarify that the policy will apply only if the paid administrative leave is voluntary. In the event of a voluntary administrative leave, campuses must obtain an indemnification from management personnel. We anticipate issuing the policy by December 2017.
