Updated Staff Handbook Now Available
As of June 20, 2013 the updated Handbook for Staff and Administrators has been distributed electronically and posted to the HR website.
This major project was led by the Office of Human Resources with support and feedback from the Staff Senate and President's Cabinet. The revision process began with Human Resources updating the existing handbook to reflect current practices and appropriate compliance and legal mandates. A revised draft was then provided to the Staff Senate for input. The Staff Senate convened the committee, reviewed the handbook and provided constructive feedback. Once the Staff Senate completed this review, follow-up meetings were held with Human Resources to discuss the Senate's comments. This draft was then presented to the President's Cabinet for final review.
This 2013 Handbook replaces and supercedes all previous versions of the handbook in its entirety and should be used as the current source of information regarding employment with the University.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Human Resources at (570) 941-7767.
