1.0 PURPOSE

The relationship between Wheeling Jesuit University and its employees, including all policies contained herein, are defined by this policy.

2.0 POLICY STATEMENT

2.1 Definition

2.1.1 "At will" - employment is for an unspecified period of time and either the employee or the University may end the relationship at any time, for any reason, with or without notice or cause.

2.1.2 "Contract" - employment for a specified period of time or through the completions of a specified scope of work with deliverables stated. All contracts must be approved by the President of the University or his designee.

2.2 Employment with the University is considered to be "at will" for all employees absent a personal employment contract or a collective bargaining agreement specifying a duration (length of time) and scope of work.

2.3Nothing contained in the University's Policies or Procedures or in any oral or written statement, including offer letters and benefits enrollment forms, shall change an employee's at-will status or otherwise limit the University's right to terminate employment at will.

2.4 University policies and procedures are established to function as guidelines for administration of the University; in addition to offer letters and benefits enrollment forms, they are not intended to create a contract, nor are they to be construed to constitute contractual obligations of any kind or a contract of employment between Wheeling Jesuit University and any of its employees.

2.5No manager or employee of Wheeling Jesuit University shall have the authority to enter into an employment agreement - express or implied - with any individual providing for employment other than at-will absent the approval of the University President or his designee. All contracts must be signed by both the VP for Administration and the Director of Human Resources before they are issued to an individual [Exception: Part-Time Faculty - Adjuncts - contracts for a specific class, semester, and year may be signed by the Director of Human Resources upon request from the Vice President of Academic Affairs. These short term contracts may not exceed one (1) fifteen (15) week semester]. Employees who enter into contracts outside this policy will be subject to corrective discipline up to and including termination. 

3.0 AUTHORIZATION  

The Director of Human Resources has the authority to change, modify or approve exceptions to this policy at any time with or without notice and with the approval of the University President or his designee.
