Policy Statement

The policies referenced as Employment Policies and Procedures apply to all Dartmouth College employees unless specifically stated otherwise in each policy. 

The policies are intended as guidelines only, and they may be modified, supplemented, or revoked at any time at the College's discretion.  In particular, these policies do not constitute a contract (nor should they be construed as a contract) guaranteeing employment for any specified duration. Except as set forth in writing in collective bargaining agreements, individual employment contracts, or other College policies, either the employee or the College may terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason.  No supervisor, manager, or representative of the College has the authority to make any promises, commitments, or changes that conflict with the policies in this manual unless approved in writing by the chief human resources officer.

These policies supersede any handbook or policy statements, whether written or oral, issued prior to December 2006. Any subsequent revisions will substitute and replace prior policy or procedure statements and become a part of the Employment Policies and Procedures. The College will provide as much notice as possible of any changes in these policies.  The most recent versions of all policies are available here, and policy updates will be posted directly to this Web site.

Employees who are covered by collective bargaining agreements should refer to those agreements for information regarding benefits and terms and conditions of employment.  Employees covered by the Faculty Handbook should refer to the Handbook for employment-related polices that are unique to the faculty. 

If you have questions about any of these policies, please contact your Human Resources Consultant.
