This policy manual explains university personnel policies applicable to appointed Support Staff on the Bloomington campus and appointed Clerical and Technical employees on the Northwest campus represented by Communications Workers of America (CWA), Local 4730. The term Support Staff is used throughout this manual to refer to both groups of employees. Unless otherwise indicated in a particular policy, all personnel policies apply to employees in their new evaluation period.
The language used in this manual should not be construed as creating a contract of employment between Indiana University and any employee. Individual departments have departmental operating procedures specific to the subject matter of the department. Such procedures are supplemental to-not in lieu of-the policies in the manual. In case of conflict between such operating procedures and the policies in this manual, the policies in this manual shall control and such conflict shall be subject to all stages of the grievance procedure including mediation and arbitration.
In this publication, red font is used in the Web pages—and italicized and underlined font is used in the printed pages—to indicate revisions since the last publication. For a quick reference of revised policies, please refer to the Table of Contents.
