Personnel Policies and Procedures

Califon UMC Personnel Policies and Procedures [DRAFT]


Updated by the SPRC [date]
Approved by Church Council [date]

This manual is not an employment contract, but it does serve as a description of what staff and the church may expect from one another as long as the employment relationship continues.  Neither a member of the staff nor Califon UMC is bound to continue in the employment relationship if either chooses to end the relationship at any time. Given the relationships involved in paid work within a church congregation, every effort should be made on the part of both the church and the staff members to conduct the employment relationship with a spirit of Christian respect and care.

This manual will be reviewed from time to time by the Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) and any changes will be made known to staff. Requests for variances from these policies may be addressed to SPRC if special circumstances arise, and the SPRC will consider those requests carefully. If major changes are required, SPRC will recommend action to the Church Council.
