Guide for Writing a State Legislative Personnel Manual

This important resource, developed specifically for legislative organizations, helps staff managers ensure that legislatures, like all workplaces, keep pace with the ever-evolving field of human resources. The Guide can be used to inform common topics found in personnel manuals, as well as those that may be unique to legislatures. This manual is an initiative of the LSCC and will be updated every two years.
