This handbook has been prepared to acquaint new employees with policies, personnel procedures, and benefit plans at Bridgewater State College. It does not constitute and should not be interpreted as a contract or binding agreement.
It was prepared in accordance with current collective bargaining agreements, Massachusetts Board of Higher Education (Board) policy handbooks, and applicable state and federal laws. Should any information in the handbook conflict with a collective bargaining agreement or federal or state law, the applicable agreement or law will generally take precedence.
Information will be changed periodically as a result of modifications of institutional policies, collective bargaining agreements, policy changes effected by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education or the Governor, and changes in state and federal employment laws. Employees will be notified of changes through memoranda, the web site, and/or periodic revisions of the handbook.
