[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Simsbury 10-8-1975. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to Sections 403 and 1001 of the Charter of the Town of Simsbury, a Personnel Plan shall be established by the Board of Selectmen of said town in accordance with the following.
The Personnel Plan will apply to all employees of the town except those employed by the Board of Education.
The plan will include:
A position description for each employee in a position filled by or to be filled by an employee of the town, including a complete description of the duties and responsibilities of the position, the minimum qualifications required for appointment to the position and the person who supervises and has authority to employ and terminate employees in the position.
Compensation plan which identifies compensation ranges for each employment position and a statement of the town's policy with regard to the development and revision of the ranges, and the application of the plan.
Personnel guidelines and rules establishing, among other things, procedures for selection and promotion, probationary employment, normal hours of work and overtime, vacations, sick leave, leaves of absence, dismissals and other guidelines and rules as appropriate to form a complete system for supervising, developing and organizing personnel employed by the town in a manner which is fair to the individuals concerned and as inexpensive and efficient as possible.
The First Selectman shall prepare or cause to be prepared initial position descriptions for all existing positions and present them to the Board of Selectmen for review at or before the first meeting of the Board of Selectmen in December 1975.
The First Selectman shall prepare or cause to be prepared new or revised position descriptions from time to time as appropriate and submit them to the Board of Selectmen for approval. No new permanent full-time employees will become employed by the town until a position description has been prepared, recommended by the First Selectman and approved by the Board of Selectmen, except when unusual circumstances require a temporary departure from this standard.
The First Selectman shall also prepare or cause to be prepared the compensation plan and personnel guidelines and rules referred to in § 48-3 above. They shall be referred to the Board of Selectmen for review at or before the first meeting of the Board of Selectmen in December 1975.
Separate provisions may apply with respect to position descriptions, compensation plan and personnel guidelines and rules for employees subject to collective bargaining agreements as necessitated by those agreements.
The First Selectman and the Board of Selectmen shall be assisted by the Personnel and Collective Bargaining Committee of the Board of Selectmen in fulfilling their obligations as outlined above. All newly created positions will be referred to this Committee prior to action by the full Board. This Committee will also be advised of plans to hire or promote employees at department head level so that assistance can be provided in screening candidates and so that the Committee will be able to recommend action to the full Board when appropriate.
