  1. Except as otherwise determined by the President or the Trustees, all full-time employees are hired at-will and receive an offer letter for employment which they sign if they accept the job offer.  The offer letter of employment is not an employment contract. Part-time non-instructional and part-time instructional employees of Blue Ridge Community College receive contracts that specify the rate of pay and duration of appointment.  Part-time employees are hired for a fixed term for a specific purpose, and nothing written in the contract or by oral agreement is to state or imply that the employment will be continued beyond the fixed term.
  2. A copy of the signed contract or offer letter must be received by the Human Resources Office before a check will be issued to an employee.  A copy will be kept in the personnel file in the Human Resources Office.
