UCPath Lived Name Implementation

June 08, 2023




UCPath implemented changes related to the Gender Recognition & Lived Name Policy on June 20, 2023

The changes for employees and managers are as follows:

Employee Self-Service:

  • A new “Name” field will replace the current “Preferred Name” field, and employees will have the ability to add a self-chosen name to the updated field.
  • The “Name” field will automatically display the employee’s self-chosen name if available, or Legal Name if a self-chosen name was not
  • Self-chosen names will be visible in UCPath and throughout employee and manager self-service.
  • UCPath will only display Legal Name in required documents, such as pay statements and W-2 forms.

Manager Self-Service:

  • UCPath will now display the employee’s self-chosen name instead of their legal name
