As of August 21, UCLA has more than 3,300 UCPath jobs with an end date of September 30, 2023. ​​In order to avoid unintended job terminations, we recommend doing the following by September 15:

  1. Run the “Jobs with Approaching End Dates” CDW report (CDW navigation: Team Content > UCPath CDW > Workforce Administration > Jobs with Approaching End Dates Report).
  2. Review the pulled records to ensure the September 30, 2023, Expected Job Record End Dates are correct.
