Employment at Will – Staff

Employment with Wilkes University is based on mutual consent.

Subject to all applicable federal and state laws, both the employee and Wilkes University have the right to terminate employment at-will, with or without cause, at any time with or without prior notice except in situations involving tenured positions and/or contractual requirements.

The Human Resources policies do not and are not intended to create a contract, nor are they to be construed to constitute contractual obligations of any kind or a contract of employment between Wilkes University and any of its employees. Provisions of these policies have been developed at the discretion of management and, except for the policy of employment-at-will, may be amended or cancelled at any time, at Wilkes University's sole discretion.

These provisions supersede all existing policies and practices and may not be amended or added to without the express written approval of the Wilkes University President's Cabinet.
