JSU Staff Handbook: You Matter

Last Revised: June 2019

This handbook is only one resource containing personnel-related policies of JSU. Individual departments may have procedures and/or rules specific to the department. Approved University-wide Personnel Policies are published in the JSU Policies and Procedures Manual at http://www.jsu.edu/policies manual.

The policies, practices, and benefits discussed in this handbook are general operating guidelines, which do not represent a contract of employment and remain subject to change at any time by JSU.

This book should not be used as a sole indication of whether JSU has a policy covering a subject. Contact the Department of Human Resources at 256-782-5007 if further clarification or additional information is needed.
