Employee Policies & Procedures (aka Handbook) is NOW online on AccessTufts
For years the Tufts Employee Handbook has only been available in paper copy or as a PDF online. With the launch of AccessTufts 2.0, HR has created a totally online Employee Policies and Procedures guide. The new online version allows the community to easily search for and access pertinent information from their computer, tablet, or mobile device.
The Employee Policies and Procedures guide still provides key information regarding Tufts University’s policies and workplace standards for employees. Employee Policies & Procedures apply to employees of the University who regularly work a minimum per week of seventeen and a half (17.5) hours, and are not faculty members or covered by collective bargaining. All references to “employee” or “employees” relate expressly to non-academic, non-unionized, staff employees. There may be some policies or procedures unique to your specific work area that will be explained by your supervisor. In certain circumstances, a Handbook supplement for your workgroup, such as Dining Services, Postdoctoral Fellows, and overseas employees, may supersede these Employee Policies & Procedures. Additionally, some policies are modified for staff employed only during the academic year.
