3.1.1 "At Will" Employment

adopted: Mar-1976
last revised: Feb-2019

Unless specified otherwise by written contract or State law, all employees have an “at will” employment relationship with Richland Community College. Thus, both the College and the employee have the right to terminate employment at any time, with or without cause or advance notice. The College’s personnel policies are intended to provide guidance as to the College’s ordinary approach to the topics discussed and not to promise that the College will act at all times in accordance with the policies. Specific circumstances may warrant exceptions. The purpose of the policies of the Board of Trustees is to establish clear expectations for all employees in regard to the terms, conditions, and benefits of employment.
