ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The Human Resources Department, assisted by the County Attorney’s Office, has been reviewing the County’s Personnel Policy Manual in order to update existing policies in a number of areas. The staff is proposing revisions to the following specific policy: Criminal Convictions/Motor Vehicle Violations (P-05)
4.1 Provide effective, responsive and courteous service to our customers.
The proposed policy contains a number of changes. First, the policy adds the requirement that all employees must promptly report an arrest for a criminal violation of any kind to their supervisor or department head. Second, the policy clarifies that the County may take appropriate disciplinary action when an employee has been arrested. Third, the policy clarifies the conditions under which the County may collect and maintain employee criminal history record background information, and provides that the County may consider a criminal conviction on an employee's suitability for continued County employment. These changes are deemed necessary in order to eliminate ambiguities in the present policy and provide clear direction to both employees and their supervisors as to necessary or appropriate actions to take in situations involving the arrest of a County employee.
Staff recommends adoption of the attached Resolution, which will approve the proposed changes to personnel policy P-05.
