Employee Relations

The Employee Relations Officers provide specialized guidance and training regarding employment law, employee/labor relations, personnel policies and procedures to all employees. They also review and revise College policies and departmental procedures and develop reports based on investigations regarding employee related complaints, concerns, and issues.

Employee Handbook

The Employee Handbook has been prepared for your information and comprehension of the employment policies and practices of South Texas College in effect at the time of publication. All previously issued policies and any inconsistent policy statements or memoranda are superseded.

The College reserves the right to revise, modify, delete, or add to any and all policies, procedures, work rules, or benefits stated in this handbook or in any other document.

The Employee Handbook is intended to support policy statements of the Board of Trustees, and in any instance where it is determined that the handbook is not compatible with the Board Policy Manual, Board policy shall prevail. Nothing in this handbook or in any other personnel document, including the benefit plan description, creates or is intended to create a promise or representation of continued employment for any employee.
