Employee Services

NIU employees have access to many services that protect their best interests and help ensure fair treatment.

If you're a civil service employee and your duties/qualifications have changed, you or your supervisor can request a position classification review, also called a desk audit, which can result in a change to your classification.

We actively promote equal employment opportunities for all job candidates. We'll treat you fairly and work with you to provide reasonable accommodations you need to do your job. Read more about disability services.

When you were hired, you may have been hired into a union. Or you may have joined a recently formed union on campus. Take some time to learn about what it means to be a member of a union.

We also have resources to assist you when things go wrong. If you're injured on the job, you may qualify for workers' compensation benefits. If you've been treated unfairly in your workplace, our employee grievance procedures can help resolve the situation.
