This Handbook is to be used as an aid and guide. It is not, however, a replacement for the advice and guidance available from Employee & Labor Relations.
Each section covers an area of inquiry with a brief introduction, then answers the questions most frequently asked of Employee & Labor Relations by supervisors and managers. Links provided throughout will take you to sample letters and other documents, such as County policies.
Our purpose is to make the handbook as complete as possible, so please call Employee & Labor Relations if there is an issue you would like addressed in this Handbook, and we may incorporate it in a future update.
You can find contact information for your department’s Employee & Labor Relations representative, as well as access the current Memoranda of Understanding, “Rules of the Civil Service Commission” and “Employer-Employee & Labor Relations Policy” via PDF, by visiting us online at http://hr.smcgov.org/.
