Title
Repealing and recreating Section 3.13 of the Madison General Ordinances to update the Human Resources Department section.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: Sec. 3.13 describes the organization of the Human Resources Department. It appears the last time any update to this ordinance occurred in 2007, although this revision includes changes to the department structure that took place long before that. The proposed ordinance reflects the current mission, goals, and organization of the Human Resources Department. Significant changes include:
· Elimination of units that are no longer part of the Human Resources Department, including Safety (3.13(8)), Workers’ Compensation Unit (3.13(9)), and Disability Rights (Internal) Unit (3.13(10)). Safety and Workers’ Compensation are now part of the Finance Department, and Disability Rights is part of the Department of Civil Rights.
· Renaming the Personnel Administration Unit the Human Resources Services Unit and expanding the definition to include broad HR Strategy responsibility
· Renaming the Labor Relations Unit the Employee and Labor Relations Unit, and clarifying the duties and responsibilities in the Unit to include workplace accommodations and employee benefits.
· Moving language regarding overall responsibility for Labor Relations from the Labor Relations Unit to the HR Director section, clarifying that the HR Director is responsible, in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office, for setting the direction for labor negotiations with the City’s various bargaining units.
· Updating responsibilities within the Organizational Developing and Training and Employee Assistance Units.
