2014 AACUHO Benchmarking Project

In recent times, AACUHO and UCA have been proactive in identifying areas where the two associations can collaborate on projects that will benefit the industry as a whole.  The AACUHO Benchmarking Project is one such area where both association members can benefit. Participating in the benchmarking program will allow you to critically analyse your operations against other residences across the country and within your own state or territory.  Please register today and submit your data entry by 30 June.

RAs - common law employees or not?
Acccording to the UCA's survey on Professional Development for Resident Assistants (RAs), 41% of respondents did not regard their RAs as employees. Given this response and the fact that it has been 16 years since advice from Clayton Utz was provided, the UCA Executive Committee commissioned Peter McDonald to look again at this issue and a copy of this document can be obtained by emailing Deborah Pugh, Executive Officer. Please note, this is general advice and additional more specific advice can be sought if required.
