Employee Policies

We prepared this handbook to assist you in finding the answers to many questions that you may have regarding your employment with Antioch College. Please take the necessary time to read it.

We do not expect this handbook to answer all of your questions. Your Supervisor and the Business Office also will be a major source of information.

Neither this handbook nor any other verbal or written communication by a management representative, is, nor should it be considered to be, an agreement, contract of employment, express or implied, or a promise of treatment in any particular manner in any given situation. Antioch College adheres to the policy of employment at will, which permits the College or the employee to terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason, with or without cause or notice.

Employment at-will may only be altered IN AN INDIVIDUAL CASE OR GENERALLY in writing signed by the President or Chief Operating Officer of the College.

Many matters covered by this handbook, such as benefit plan descriptions, are also described in separate College documents. These College documents are always controlling over any statement made in this handbook or by any member of management.

This handbook states only general College guidelines. The College may, at any time, in its sole discretion, modify or vary from anything stated in this handbook, with or without notice, except for the rights of the parties to terminate employment at will.

Sustainability Policies

Prohibiting Idling

Antioch College recognizes that idling vehicles waste money and contribute to local air pollution and global carbon emissions. Antioch College prohibits college-owned vehicles and discourages other vehicles from idling while on the campus, except when necessary. Idling is defined herein as running a car engine while the vehicle is stationary for more than 3 minutes.

Computer Purchasing

Antioch College recognizes the impact that more energy-efficient computers and monitors can have on sustainability. By saving energy, reducing heat loads within buildings, and encouraging recycling and industry best practices, Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) certified products can further Antioch’s sustainability goals while saving the institution money. Antioch College encourages the purchase of EPEAT Silver or higher computers and monitors, whenever possible.

Cleaning Product Purchasing

Antioch College acknowledges the important role that cleaning practices play in overall sustainability goals. By streamlining operations, using less water, using less product, and using more environmentally-friendly products, the Antioch community can reduce its impact. Antioch encourages the purchase of Green Seal or EcoLogo certified cleaning products, whenever possible.

Office Paper Use and Purchasing

Antioch College recognizes that the purchase of recycled content paper reduces demand for timber, conserving trees to reduce climate change and provide forest habitats. Purchasing recycled content office paper also encourages the manufacture of products made from recycled material. The Antioch community will strive to reduce paper usage through limiting printing, encouraging electronic communications, printing double-sided when possible, and encouraging the purchase of the highest percentage recycled content paper possible for campus printers, with a stated preference for paper with a post-consumer recycled content of 30% or higher.
