Employee Relations

"Our mission is to maintain effective communications with agencies and employees statewide to promote cooperation, problem solving and understanding of personnel policies, the Merit Rules, and sensitive workplace issues. Communications will consist of publications, training and frequent, direct personal contacts with employees and agency management."
