The HRD/OCB Policy section serves a dual role within two divisions of the Department of Administrative Services (DAS), the Human Resources Division (HRD) and the Office of Collective Bargaining (OCB). The staff in the HRD/OCB Policy section are members of each division and assist external and internal agency customers in both the human resources and collective bargaining areas. Although each division has a unique role within DAS, the areas of human resources and collective bargaining are often interconnected. The HRD/OCB Policy section helps to identify and assist with connected issues as well as provide individualized assistance in areas unique to each division. In order to better assist our external and internal agency customers, Policy Analysts have agency assignments for both their roles within HRD and OCB.
Some of the functions HRD/OCB Policy Analysts perform are:
- Providing technical assistance and support to various state agencies regarding the application of employment laws and regulations;
- Tracking legislation and regulatory changes impacting state employment practices;
- Providing training and updates to state agency HR professionals on employment law issues;
- Working on legislation and regulations;
- Reviewing, evaluating, and making recommendations to the Director of DAS regarding exempt parity requests from state agencies;
- Providing internal support to the Human Resources Division.
