Staff contact details

(12 February 2021)

Oracle Fusion has now been in place for over a year. Through Oracle you can access your pay slips, details of your employment, claim expenses, book annual leave and other related Human Resources functions.

An important part of the system is that emergency contact details can be stored in the system, so you can enter details of who to contact in an emergency in the ‘Family and Emergency Contacts’ section. We would ask colleagues to ensure their records are up to date, so that in an emergency situation delays are minimised when contacting your emergency contacts.

Additionally alternative means of contact can be entered in the ‘Contact info’ section. Here an alternative, or personal email address can be entered. These details are not used routinely, but we would ask colleagues to provide a personal email account (non Durham University). One such scenario where this would be valuable would be in the extreme case that the Durham email service was not available for an extended period, by having a personal email account recorded the University would be able to contact colleagues and keep you informed until the Durham email service was restored.

Details of how your data is protected and used is available at Employees Privacy Notice.
