Statement of Purpose
The Employee Handbook is for the purpose of providing general information to present and prospective regular employees of St. Edward's University (SEU). Inherent in St. Edward's mission to provide excellence in education is the expectation of excellence in job performance. The administrative and supervisory leadership of the St. Edward's community stands ready to assist all employees in achieving their highest potential.
In an effort to familiarize new employees with our community, the Employee Handbook provides information about benefits and services. In addition, this Handbook outlines policies, procedures, and performance expectations for all regular employees so consistent treatment may be enjoyed by all.
Every effort has been made to provide current and correct information. Certain programs and policies discussed have exceptions, variations, eligibility requirements, etc., which may be affected by the particular status of an individual employee. The university reserves the right to make exceptions to the terms and provisions of the Employee Handbook in appropriate circumstances.
This handbook covers only the high points of many programs and benefit plans and is written with as few legal and technical terms as possible. It is not intended to substitute for the full text of any program or plan. In the event of discrepancy between the Employee Handbook and any contractual benefit plan, the contract provisions will govern.
As with any document of this complexity, modifications will be necessary to clarify intent and to respond to environmental growth and change. Updated hard copies of the Employee Handbook may be picked up in Human Resources; however, the most current version can be found online.
The Employee Handbook does not constitute a written or implied contract of employment and should not be construed as evidencing any binding obligation of SEU or as conferring any rights or compensation upon any employee. SEU reserves the right to modify the provisions of this Handbook without notice.
