The Human Resources Policy Manual contains the human resource policies and procedures of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. The objectives of this manual are to:
These policies are approved by Treasury Board, administered by the Secretariat's HR Policy and Planning Division and apply to all employees of Government departments as well as to selected agencies, boards and commissions. However, where there is a conflict between these policies and a collective agreement, the collective agreement will take precedence.
The Human Resources Policy Manual is available only as an electronic document on the Internet. Departments requiring hard copies of any policy should print them directly from the browser.
The HR Policy and Planning Division will maintain up-to-date policy files. Departments will be responsible for notifying their employees of policy changes.
The manual will replace the Personnel Administration Procedures Manual. Employees should use the Personnel Administration Procedures Manual only when referencing those policies which do not appear in this manual.

Human resource policies are continuously being developed and revised. If you do not see a policy relevant to your HR issue, contact the Strategic HR Management team responsible for your department, for further information. See the HR Contacts for Departments section.
