Wilkes University Employee Policies Manual
Issue Date: 1/1/2004
The purpose of the Employee Policies Manual is to provide employees with a resource of information about policies and procedures related to the University’s workplace. It was prepared to help you become familiar with many of your responsibilities as an employee and the various programs implemented by the University to benefit employees.
The University encourages employees to review the manual and use it as a reference
for many employment related questions. Questions or concerns about any portion of
the Employee Manual should be addressed to the head of the Human Resources Department.
Although the University has tried to be comprehensive, the Employee Policies Manual does not, and cannot, include policies which address every situation that may arise. The University reserves the right to revise, supplement, or rescind any portion of the Employee Policies Manual at any time, with or without prior notice. The University will endeavor to communicate such changes to employees in a timely fashion.
This manual is not intended to be, and should not be interpreted as, a contract between the University and any employee.
Many of the Human Resources policies refer to University leaders by a specific job titles. As University leaders’ job titles change from time to time, employees should refer to the head of the named department if a job title named in a policy no longer exists or has changed.
