Employment Rules & Policies

Employment with the County is administered according to the rules of the County Civil Service System which was established by a vote of the citizens of the county. The Civil Service Rules provide for such matters as the recruitment and appointment process, employee compensation, probationary periods, layoff provisions, and discipline and appeal procedures.

The Nepotism Policy asserts the County’s right to refuse to appoint a person to a position in the same department, division or facility where his/her relationship to another employee has the potential for creating an adverse impact on supervision, safety, security or morale, or involves a potential conflict of interest.
