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
    These Standards of Conduct are prescribed by the Texas State Legislature.
  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse and Rehabilitation Program Notice
