EDU: Red Flags of Identity Theft (30 Minutes)
Electronically-stored information and online transactions increase the risk, number, and costs of identity thefts, which affect millions of individuals and cost billions of dollars each year.
Most often, identity thieves seek out confidential financial information to steal. As a result, federal law requires institutions to adopt policies and train employees on preventing identity theft if they extend credit (including Perkins Loans), administer credit or multi-transactional accounts, or obtain information from (or provide it to) consumer reporting agencies.
This course is designed to help employees at colleges and universities detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft related to financial accounts. It covers the "Identity Theft Red Flags" and materials mandated by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACT Act), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and regulations of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It includes real-world cases and interactive exercises to engage employees and give them the skills necessary to protect your institution.
Targeted areas identified in the FACTA Red Flag UC Policy are required to take this course upon hire.
EDU: Accommodating Disabilities (30 Minutes)
This course provides an overview of disability discrimination laws and helps supervisors navigate the process of accommodating qualified applicants and employees with disabilities. In addition to explaining an employer's legal obligations, supervisors learn how to identify protected individuals, engage in the interactive process, recognize common problem areas, and valuable skills for accommodating individuals with disabilities.
Using real case reviews, case studies of real-world situations, and role playing, supervisors will be better prepared to recognize protected individuals, respond to requests for accommodation, engage in the interactive process, and avoid common mistakes.
This course also provides information on UC's Disability Grievance Procedure.
