Policy Interpretation

Last updated August 1, 2001

It is the responsibility of Human Resources to interpret these policies and procedures. Except for provisions of these policies specifying employee rights, Human Resources may, when circumstances warrant, issue determinations which may vary from these policies.

Within parameters established by these policies, departments may issue their own policies. In the event of conflict in such cases, the Human Resources Policies and Procedures take precedence over individual department policies.

Governance at the university is according to the Bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska and the Bylaws of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. If any point in this chapter is in conflict with either set of Bylaws, the Bylaws shall be the final authority.

Except for the Bylaws, these policies supercede all previously published policies governing employment practices at the university.
