Primary Information

    Employee Policies and Procedures (aka the Employee Handbook) provides key information regarding Tufts University’s policies and workplace standards for employees. It is intended to be an internal reference tool for University staff and is presented for informational purposes only. The Handbook applies to employees of the University who regularly work a minimum per week of seventeen and a half (17.5) hours, and are not faculty members or covered by collective bargaining. All references to “employee” or “employees” in the Handbook relate expressly to non-academic, non-unionized, staff employees. There may be some policies or procedures unique to your specific work area that will be explained by your supervisor. In certain circumstances, a Handbook supplement for your work group, such as Dining Services, Postdoctoral Fellows, and overseas employees, may supersede this Employee Handbook. Additionally, some policies are modified for staff employed only during the academic year.
    Although comprehensive, the Handbook is intended to be a summary guide and cannot address every question that might develop during your employment. Your supervisor and the Human Resources staff welcome the opportunity to answer your questions.
    The Handbook provides information and guidelines on topics within the following areas:
    • Diversity
    • Employment
    • Compensation
    • Workplace Expectations
    • Time Off
    • Leaves of Absence
    • Leaving the University
