About our Department

The Department of Human Resources is responsible for a variety of services for the City of New Haven's diverse workforce - current and potential: This includes: policy, training, recruitment and hiring, job classification studies, and work-life programs. Our office also maintains Medical Benefits enrollment for both the City and Board of Education. In addition, the Department of Human Resources provides expert assistance and information to our internal and external customers.

We team with other City departments to address current and future hiring needs and to ensure that staffing plans achieve and maintain diverse staff representation. We provide departments with information, advice, consultation and support on human resource issues which assists them in creating a flexible and responsive workforce that, in turn, delivers effective and efficient services to the community.

Our department works with employees and supervisors to manage leaves of absence in compliance with FMLA, ADA, Civil Service and contractual obligations. The staff works to enhance the organizational values of customer service, equitable treatment, appreciation of diversity, collaborative teamwork, employee and organizational creativity and productivity, and effective communication. Additionally, we ensure compliance with state and federal employment laws, and process complaints as needed.
