for Administrators and Staff of St. John’s University
This Employee Handbook will guide you through employment at St.
John’s by providing practical and necessary information about your
employment and the University. It should help to link you to the
broader organization by sharing policies, procedures, practices and
services that relate to your role as an employee.
This online Employee Handbook replaces all previous
handbooks. Policies and information within the Handbook are
subject to change, and from time to time you may receive a notice
of those changes and those changes will govern. Employee rights and
responsibilities are always governed by existing law and nothing in
the Handbook provides legal rights in addition to those rights
provided by law. In the event that there is a discrepancy between a
policy in the Handbook and the Human Resources Policy
Manual, the Policy Manual shall prevail.
The contents of this Employee Handbook are not intended to
create, and do not create, either an implied nor expressed contract
or guarantee of employment or contractual obligation between the
University the its employees. For our Employment at Will statement,
see the handbook section entitled About Your Employment.
