5.3 Contractual Relationships

Board of Trustee Approval: August 6, 2007
Revised: October 1, 2012; June 1, 2018; October 1, 2018

All employees of Sandhills Community College are employed by contract. The term of employment does not exceed the length of the contract. Full-time personnel to whom the College does not intend to issue a new contract will be so notified by April 1 of the year of expiration of the existing contract. Part-time employees are employed on a semester to semester basis, and are not guaranteed employment beyond the expiration date of their current contract.  Since employees of the College are employed for the duration of their contracts only, failure to receive a new contract is not subject to the College Grievance Procedures unless the employee alleges discrimination.

The President, at his/her discretion, may make the advance notice null and void in instances of employee sub-standard performance, misconduct, or otherwise egregious offenses.
