(B) The university of Akron follows the provisions of Revised Code in adopting human resource policies and procedures. Since these items are subject to change as rules and regulations are modified, new pages with corrected information will be provided for insertion in this handbook. However, it is the responsibility of employees to ask questions, to keep information relevant to university policies and procedures, and to insert applicable communications into this manual as they become available.

(E) It is expressly agreed and understood that these policies and procedures create no expectancy of employment, continued employment, or re-employment of the employee, upon which the employee may rely; and, that no services of the employee can be counted or used toward any expectancy of employment, re-employment or continued employment at the university of Akron, the branch campus or any of the university's other affiliates.
