The Employee Handbook acquaints you with the employment policies and benefits for exempt/administrative staff, nonexempt/ administrative support staff and members of the faculty in their status as employees of Smith College. These policies work in conjunction with, and do not replace or amend provisions in, the Faculty Code and Policies or any collective bargaining agreement Smith College has with a union. For additional information about employment with Smith, faculty should consult the Faculty Code and Policies on the Office of the Provost/Dean of the Faculty website, and union employees should consult the terms of their collective bargaining contract. The college reserves the right to make, from time to time, changes in policies and employee benefits that it considers to be in the best interest of the Smith community.
This handbook contains summaries and general overviews; it is not all-inclusive.

Employee Handbook updates, for most employees, will be available online. For those who do not have computer access, paper copies will be available in the Office of Human Resources.
