You will also serve as a resource to colleagues across the system with questions about personnel rules and labor relations matters for Classified employees.

Duties Include:

  • Generating and evaluating EEO reporting for positions to identify potential adverse impact and adjust selection processes, as appropriate, to address.
  • Serving as a resource to the colleges within the system on labor relations and personnel rules for Classified positions.
