As part of its statewide Human Resources Portal Demonstration Project, the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) partnered with Pullman and Comley, LLC, to create a compendium of model HR documents. Drawing on their extensive knowledge of employment and labor law, the Pullman and Comley team crafted best practice-based and legally-compliant templates for communities to draw from in order to update and customize editions for local implementation.
These documents, which include a collection of model job descriptions, a comprehensive model Employee Handbook for non-union employees, and an updated municipal employment application, are now available to municipal officials across the state for download from CRCOG’s new HR Portal website, www.Nutmeghr.org.
Join this interactive presentation with CCM and CRCOG as we: walk through the model templates; highlight required and best practice components; explain the legal context for select provisions; and identify recent federal and state legislative changes that may have rendered existing municipal documents out-of-date and non-compliant.
