Human Resources & Risk Management
Human Resources is vested with the responsibility for compliance with all state, federal and local requirements regarding all employment laws and regulations.
College policy and procedure, as well as best management practices follow these guidelines.
Procedures for employment, record keeping, affirmative action, wage/hour and payroll, safety, risk management, security, etc are all maintained by the Human Resources Office.
Additionally, Human Resources is a resource for any employee wanting to discuss any employee relations and any community Title IX issue/matter that cannot be successfully resolved with their direct manager and department. Human Resources has the responsibility to investigate and/or facilitate resolution through department management or senior management, as necessary.
Employment & Diversity
Our job postings will appear on the website for all faculty and staff positions (student positions are posted in career link). In addition we post in various sources for higher education and local job boards. Applicants are encouraged to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Benefits, Classification & Compensation
Full time positions for faculty or staff are eligible for our Employee Benefit programs.
Employees are paid every two weeks, on Friday. Exempt employees are salaried and only require notifying payroll of paid time off taken each pay period. Non-exempt and student employees must keep time cards by pay period which are turned into the payroll office for each pay period.
Human Resources maintains job classification and salary ranges for each position on campus. The College participates in several faculty and staff salary surveys in higher education each year. Additionally, the Human Resources Office participates in several local and national professional networks.
Following completion of a successful three month introductory period, new employees are eligible to participate in annual performance evaluations and merit salary increases.
Each department is responsible for performance appraisal and salary administration along budget guidelines.
Training & Development
Employees are expected to keep current in their job responsibilities and the College offers opportunities to continue education and pursue career advancement through internal training programs and external development opportunities. Employees are also encouraged to be involved in such programs as monthly management meetings, leadership workshops, and a number of opportunities through our Life/Learn Community to become involved campus life.
Workers' compensation, liability, automobile, and all business and casualty insurance are handled by our broker and insurance contracts. The College maintains policies and procedures to ensure that faculty and staff understand such requirements as personal vehicle use, outside contracts and vendors, safety and accident reporting, security and facilities regulations, etc. Risk management works closely with facilities and operations, housing, student judicial, and campus security to maintain a safe working and living environment.
