Employee Relations

Our mission is to provide confidential assistance to university employees and their supervisors to help identify and resolve work related problems or proactively avoid potential problems! Here is just a sample of the confidential services available to you. . . .

The employee relations team partners closely with other offices on campus to ensure that all faculty and staff situations are addressed appropriately, including the Office of Compliance, Diversity, and Ethics and the Office of University Counsel.

The question of confidentiality often comes up when a faculty or staff member visits Employee Relations. This is a reasonable concern. Confidentiality in Employee Relations goes both ways. We honor confidentiality and the person visiting has the same duty. Before other departments are contacted as a result of an Employee Relations issue, the action is mutually agreed upon by the faculty or staff member and Employee Relations.

For more information on the services provided by the Employee Relations team contact us (703) 993-3878 or visit us in the Human Resources and Payroll Department on the 4th floor of Merten Hall.
