a mutual responsibility in which Fielding has a responsibility to its
employees, and they in turn have a responsibility to Fielding. This handbook
section seeks to make clear some of the most important of those
responsibilities as well as our general operating procedures. It also outlines
the benefit programs that are provided to Fielding employees.
No employee handbook can anticipate every circumstance or every question about
policies. It has been and continues to be our practice to follow these policies
