Policies & Regulations

Human Resources policies and procedures establish a framework and set standards that guide how we should conduct ourselves as employees and members of the broader Princeton community. This includes how we perform our jobs, make decisions, interact with one another and manage the business operations of the University. Refer to the Introduction to HR Policy & Procedure Manual in the Introduction Section below.

In addition to this site for HR policies, the University Policy website serves as a resource for the University community as a central repository of University policies that govern a wide range of University activities.

HR staff members play a vital role to help managers and staff interpret and apply our policies equitably and fairly. Please contact HR for assistance. 

In addition, all employees share responsibility for protecting the well-being of the community and for adhering to norms of behavior that make this a great place to work. For more information about rights and responsibilities of employees and applicable regulations, e.g., Title IX, Equal Opportunity, please visit our Rights & Responsibilities Web page. All employees are expected to be familiar with Rights, Rules, Responsibilities, a fundamental guide for all members of the Princeton University community, containing University principles of general conduct and regulations. Included on this website in section 10 below are all employer notices and/or posters required by the federal and state government.
The following HR policies are also available in an alphabetical list.
