Requirements and Purposes

UC San Diego has more than 40,000 employees across campus and the health system and is required to collect employee information to meet these compliance and space management requirements:

  1. Compliance with AB-119 and SB-270: Under California Assembly Bill 119 and Senate Bill 270, the university has a legal obligation to provide unions with work location information. In addition, the University of California Office of the President has expanded the work location requirement to include non-represented employees. This Work Location Form information provides union leaders the information necessary to locate potential union members for organizing purposes.
  2. Space Management: Accurate employee work location information helps leadership make space management decisions at the department, vice chancellor and campus levels. Accurate work location data provides an insight to emerging hybrid and flex-work trends and is essential to understanding campus occupancy, vacancy and capacity to support our work force.

    1. Search for, or click on, the record that you want to review. Each record will have an option for you to see Changes Waiting for Approval.
    2. Once the record is approved or rejected, it will no longer appear on your list of approvals.
      1. If there is more than one change for a given employee, you must select Approve or Reject for each one and then click Commit Changes.
      2. If a change is rejected, the information for that record will revert to the value(s) last approved.
      3. You have 15 days to review the records in your Space Manager tab; otherwise, they will default to “Approved” and be removed from your list.

Employee Location Types

All active employees working at least one day per week (or equivalent 20%) on campus must have either a Primary Location or Check-in Location.

  • Primary Location: A designated work location within a building (likely but not always an office) where the employee usually performs their work. All people in Tririga are allowed only one Primary Location, usually assigned by the person's primary or “home” department.
    • Primary Location Occupancy: The headcount (HC) of Primary Location occupants is calculated against Capacity and Total Shared Capacity. Both Capacity and Total Shared Capacity must be reviewed and adjusted appropriately when it is a workpoint (offices). When the space is a workpoint (offices), Capacity and Total Shared Capacity must be more then 1.
    • Do not use Secondary Location to indicate PI/Cluster presence. Use the Cluster allocation.
  • Secondary Location (a designated work location in addition to the Primary Location within a building0): All people in Tririga may have any number of Secondary Locations after the Primary Work Location is identified. Usually, this is due to work responsibilities at additional locations other than the Primary Location, such as a secondary appointment, project or a job-required need to work in multiple locations. The Secondary Location headcount counts against occupancy calculations when it is a workpoint.
    • Secondary Location Occupancy: As with Primary Location, the Secondary Location occupant headcount is included in the occupancy calculation. Capacity and Total Shared Capacity must also be adjusted appropriately when it is a workpoint (offices).
    • Do not use Secondary Location to indicate PI/Cluster presence. Use the Cluster allocation.
  • Check-In Location (a location where a significant concentration or majority of work does not take place in a specific designated space within a building. This will be due to work performed in the field or changing on-demand work at a variety of locations. The Check-In Location is where a supervisor or other contact could enable someone else to get in touch with the person or where staff report but not where they perform most of their work. Check-In Location people are excluded from occupancy calculations.
    • Do not use Check-In Secondary Location to indicate PI/Cluster presence. Use the Cluster allocation.
    • Note: A space may have staff in the Primary, Secondary and Check-In Locations at the same time.
