University of North Carolina Ombuds: Employee Visits Up Fourfold

Wayne Blair, UNC's University Ombuds, said that issues employees have brought to his office have quadrupled since last summer. Speaking at a staff retreat, Blair said anxieties rose last fall when growing budget shortfalls made it clear that some layoffs in 2009 were inevitable. Now those layoffs are starting to take place, and Blair said the stress for both the employees affected and the managers who have to authorize the layoffs was real. (UNC Gazette.)
