Policy Manual Disclaimer

The policies included on this website are not legal documents. Every attempt has been made to accurately represent the policies and benefits programs. The plans and policies described here are based on plan documents and University policies that govern the operations of the plans. If there is a conflict between the information presented here and the information contained in the plan documents and University policies, the plan documents and University policies always govern and are the controlling legal documents. Policy and benefit descriptions are not terms of employment, nor is the language intended to establish a contract between the University and its faculty and staff members. Full policy descriptions are in the Human Resources Policy Manual or in the plan documents available for inspection in the Benefits Office. The University reserves the right to change, amend or terminate any of its human resources policies and/or benefits plans at any time for any reason.

The benefits and policies for University of Pennsylvania employees who work in locations outside of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania may be different from the benefits and policies set forth in this website.
