Employment Policy Manual

The Employment Policy Manual (EPM) applies generally to the non-academic staff – Administrative, Sponsored Research Staff (SRS), and Support staff. Some policies also apply to the unionized Service staff, though in the case of any discrepancy between the policies and the applicable union agreement, the union agreement will govern.


While MIT tries to ensure that this manual reflects current MIT Employment Policies, at times there may be a lag between a change in policy and an update of this manual. You should contact your Human Resources Officer to ensure that the policy statements contained here are the most current. The provisions of the manual are not conditions of employment and the Employment Policy Manual is not an express or implied contract. MIT reserves the right to change or revoke any of its provisions, with or without notice, at any time.
