Personnel policy handbook training sessions for department heads and employees in Pulaski County are scheduled for this month.
County Attorney Kevin Tankersley explained to the commissioners last week that a revision is complete which provides more detail and required forms. Workers compensation, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) information, overtime, and more is included in the 98-page document. Tankersley said the new manual is more user-friendly. A policy has been in place in Pulaski County since 2012.
The training sessions for department heads will be Tuesday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to noon and Wednesday, April 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Employees will need to attend one of the three sessions. The sessions will be offered Tuesday, April 28 and Wednesday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to noon and Thursday, April 30 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET. The training for department heads and employees is mandatory.
Approval of the handbook will be on tonight’s agenda of the joint session of the commissioners and the council. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. ET in the commissioner’s meeting room in the Pulaski County Courthouse.
