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: Fiscal Division, 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.
