There is an introductory period of 60 days for all newly hired non-exempt employees. This introductory period is for the benefit of both the new employee and the College and is intended as an opportunity for the College to evaluate the new employee and for the employee to evaluate his/her new working environment. Upon completion of the introductory period employee and supervisor will conduct a joint evaluation.

The supervisor is to notify the Human Resources office that the introductory period is complete. Benefits will commence based on the appropriate eligibility period and vacation and sick day accruals will be credited from the initial date of employment.

McPherson College is an at-will-employer. Therefore at any time during the introductory period or after completion of the introductory period the College or employee can terminate employment at any time and for any reason.
