Annual Federal Notices

Did you know that…

  • If you leave the University for any reason other than gross misconduct you have the right to choose a temporary extension of medical coverage (COBRA).
  • All IU campuses maintain a daily crime log of criminal incidents and alleged criminal incidents that are reported to the campus police.
  • Any person who is intoxicated in public is at risk of arrest.

Human Resources fulfills the requirement that employers, like Indiana University, provide notices to employees about the critically important rights and responsibilities in the areas below.

Healthcare Coverage

Your rights regarding healthcare coverage range from notices about the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace to privacy practices and women’s health and cancer rights. A summary of each notice appears in Open Enrollment booklets. To see the full text of these notices visit Important Federal Notices.

Security Reports

Annual security and fire safety reports containing policy statements and crime and fire statistics for Indiana University campuses are available from the Police & Public Safety section of Protect IU website.

Safety and Prevention

Indiana University intends to maintain an alcohol and drug-free workplace and to comply with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 and its amendments. To that end, all employees must comply with the University’s Substance Free Workplace policy. For more information and resources see the Alcohol and Drugs section of the Safety and Prevention Programs website.

Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct

As we welcome students back to our campuses and enter another academic year, it’s important to remember our individual obligation to be familiar with how to respond to reports of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. By visiting, employees can learn more about IU’s policies, processes, and campus and community resources on this topic, including an online employee training module.
