The Department of Human Resource Management announced employee benefit updates that went into effect this month, bringing changes to the professional certification and jury service policies.
The jury service policy (1-27) has been modified to eliminate the daily 8-hour limit. This allows 12-hour shift employees to cover the full shift missed due to jury service.
The professional certification benefit has been increased from $300 to $500 for full-time employees, and from $150 to $250 for part-time employees. This change comes as a part of the Educational Benefits policy (K-24). Remember that educational benefits also include, where applicable, financial assistance for college/graduate courses, textbooks and continuing education units.
Since 2016, the Human Resource Management team has proactively sought feedback on how the employee experience might be improved or enhanced. The initiative is called “You talked, we listened … together we value.” Employees are invited to submit suggestions and ideas.
