Employee Information


Required Employee Notices

Employees need to be aware of federal and state laws, and Texas A&M System regulations that affect them in the workplace. Human Resources has compiled summaries and links to information that requires annual posting and provided it below for employees to review. If you have questions about the information listed here, please talk with your supervisor or the indicated responsible office or agency.

  • Equal Employment Opportunity
    Federal regulations require that contractors and subcontractors may notify employees and applicants of their EEO rights electronically and must provide employees with knowledge that the electronically posted notice is otherwise accessible. Equal Employment Opportunity notices are available here (English) (Spanish). 
  • Standards of Conduct Notice for State Employees
    These Standards of Conduct are prescribed by the Texas State Legislature .
  • Compensatory Time Notice
    All state agencies are required to notify their employees of the state's policy on compensatory time. Read this summary about federal and state compensatory time and how you may use it.
  • Notice of Privacy Practices for Medical Information
    A federal regulation, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, known as the HIPAA Privacy Rule requires that we provide detailed notice in writing of our privacy practices. This notice describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information. Please review it carefully.

Important Reminders to Employees

Some information merits a reminder on a regular basis even though not required by laws, regulations or rules to be disseminated annually to all employees. If you have questions about the information listed here, please talk with your supervisor or the indicated responsible office or agency.

  • Reporting Arrests, Charges or Convictions
    Per University Rule 33.99.14.K1 existing employees must inform their supervisor or appropriate university office within 24 hours of any criminal arrests, criminal charges, or criminal convictions, excluding misdemeanor traffic offenses punishable only by fine. If circumstances prevent this, employees should notify their supervisor as soon as the situation allows it, and provide explanation for the delay. Employees should refer to University Rule 33.99.14.K1 to determine the appropriate university office to notify.
