Employee Policy Manual

Policies and Practices for Campus

This Policy Manual is intended to serve as a practical mini-guide to the Human Resources policies and practices most often referenced by employees of Western New England University.

However, since this Policy Manual is only a limited summary of policies compiled for the convenience of our employees and supervisors, it is not intended to cover all topics or circumstances that will guide employees in the performance of their duties. A complete list of all WNE personnel policies and practices can be found in the Policy Library.

WNE reserves the right (on an individual basis or generally) to make any revisions, modifications, interpretations, or deletions to any WNE policies, procedures, benefits, or other programs, at any time with or without notice at WNE’s sole discretion.

Nothing in this Policy Manual is intended to create an express or implied contract of employment. While it is our hope at WNE that you will have a long, fulfilling, and successful career with us, all employment is at-will, which means that either the employee or WNE has the right to terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason, with or without cause or notice.

No oral or written representation made by any employee, supervisor, or manager of WNE can modify the employment at-will relationship unless it is reduced to written agreement and signed by the employee and Vice President or the Office of Human Resources of Western New England University.

This Policy Manual replaces and supersedes any and all previous Human Resources manuals, guidelines, handbooks, or memos and all oral and written descriptions and explanations of WNE’s policies.

This Policy Manual applies to all employees regardless of date of hire.
