Human Resources

The College has developed a comprehensive plan to address safety in the workplace specific to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prepared with a purpose, our plan is focused on safety protocols to protect our employees because we are a Community-First campus.

Safe at Work, also referred to as The Saint Joseph’s College 2020 COVID-19 Infectious Disease Preparedness & Response Plan (the Plan), is designed to serve as a resource.  It provides our faculty, staff, and student employees with the tools needed to become informed in safety measures, new work methods, and how to protect each other from infectious disease.

The following policies have been updated as circumstances and CDC guidance has changed over the life of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Saint Joseph’s College Employee Handbooks are undergoing a complete review and revision process. Below are policies that have been developed and updated since the handbook was released in 2003.  Revised policies are categorized by section.

Please contact Human Resources (x 7757 or email: humanresources@sjcme.edu) if you have specific employment questions.
