Program Description

  Labor and Employee Relations

Labor and Employee Relations consists of two teams: Labor and Employee Relations and Occupational Medical Services. The Labor and Employee Relations team is designed to support County managers in the areas of advice and training on labor issues, advice on related personnel policies and procedures, and the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements including competitive compensation and benefits. The Labor and Employee Relations team helps lead the collective bargaining process and provides early intervention strategies for workplace disputes to ensure that managers comply with contractual and legal requirements and improve employee labor relations.

The Occupational Medical Services team (OMS) (including Fire and Rescue Occupational Medical Services) provides multi-disciplinary occupational medical services, such as work-related medical and safety hazard assessments to promote the health, wellness, and productivity of the County workforce. OMS also administers the County's drug and alcohol and centralized Family and Medical Leave programs. The Labor and Employee Relations team also includes the County's Disability Program Manager who administers the County's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) program.
