Staff Handbook

The Staff Handbook is a basic reference concerning policies, procedures, privileges and opportunities and obligations and responsibilities affecting employees of LSU and Agricultural & Mechanical College. Intended as a convenient guide, this handbook does not contain every policy and has only excerpts from others. 

Information contained in the Staff Handbook does not create any contractual rights for university employees. This handbook neither incorporates nor adopts the constitution and bylaws of the Staff Senate.

Because the university is the initiator of change and is also subject to various external legal and regulatory forces requiring change, the information in this Staff Handbook will be revised as the university determines that conditions warrant.
