Laws, Rules & Policies

This page provides one-stop access to laws, rules, policies and procedures related to current statewide human resources operations.

Our human resources policies and procedures serve four basic functions.

  • Compliance: Our policies and procedures uniformly apply human resources laws and rules in a manner consistent with legislative and management directives, and ensure that managers will be able to comply with these rules as well.
  • Risk management: Documented rules foster an effective system of internal controls.
  • Operations: Human resources policies and procedures promote effective communication and practices which will allow employers and employees to meet their objectives.
  • Process improvement: Reviewing our human resources policies and procedures will help managers develop sound practices which ensure the rights of employers and employees.
