Administration Bureau -
Workers' Comp/Human Resources
Workers' Comp/Human Resources falls under our Administration
Bureau which provides direct support to the Custody and Enforcement
Operations Bureaus. The Administration Bureau has several other divisions:
Records Division, Civil
Division, and Forensic Services.
The Human Resources Staff are an extension of the County
Administrative Office’s Human Resource Division. The personnel
assigned are responsible for examination processes;
classification studies and specifications; consulting on employee/labor
relations and management issues; and application of federal, state and
local legislation relating to County policies and procedures, the
Personnel Policies and Practices Resolution (PPPR) and Memorandums of
Understanding (MOU’s). The HR staff also controls the personnel records
of all office employees and coordinates the benefits.
The Workers’ Compensation assignment is a professional staff
position that works closely with the County’s Workers’ Compensation
insurance carrier and with the County’s Risk Management Department in
order to monitor all Workers’ Compensation cases. The goal of this
assignment is to manage costs to the County while keeping employees
apprised of their case status and facilitating injured employees’ timely
return to the workforce.
