Merit System Rules and Regulations

The 小蓝视频 Personnel Commission is guided by Merit System Rules & Regulations, which have been set forth to treat employees and applicants fairly and equitably.

The Merit System is a method of Personnel Management designed to ensure, to the greatest extent possible, that the County Office hires and promotes qualified employees through a consistent, lawful, and job-relevant testing and hiring process. One of the fundamental goals of any public educational institution is to be accountable for representing the public interest. The community expects that public employment procedures be conducted in a fair, efficient, and transparent manner. The Merit System provides a personnel selection system that is open to all, free from political influence, and aims to provide highly qualified employment candidates.
