4.1 Human Resources: Appointing Authority
The director of Human Resources acts as the appointing authority for classified employees at Nicholls and shall be responsible for representing this agency to the Department of Civil Service. Human Resources shall handle all official university correspondence and contact with the Department of Civil Service.
This policy, however, is not intended to deprive any employee of the right to contact the Department of Civil Service concerning any problem affecting the employee individually, provided the employee does not indicate to the Department of Civil Service that he or she is representing Nicholls State University.
New and changed policies and procedures are communicated by memoranda to supervisors and employees. There are bulletin boards to pass information on to employees, and it is the employees’ duty to check the bulletin boards in the department regularly so that they may be informed. For those problems which cannot be immediately resolved, employees may use the grievance procedure explained in section 4.24.
Human Resources aspires to have a communication system which will eliminate misrepresentation, error or conflict. If there is any doubt concerning any communication, rule or policy relating to classified personnel, employees should not hesitate to contact the Human Resources office, as this is the best source of obtaining the correct information.
