Handbooks 2 (Human Resources)

Kiera Murray filed this request with the Human Resources of San Francisco, CA.
Multi Request Handbooks 2


From: Kiera Murray

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of any employee handbooks, workplace policy manuals, onboarding guides, and other documents and policy books provided to new employees as part of a “new hire” program that are maintained by this agency. If orientation materials are provided digitally to new employees, please provide digital copies of these materials.

You may limit this request to materials that are currently provided to new employees.

If there are ways to modify or change the scope of my request to reduce the burden on agency resources, please let me know. If over the past six months you’ve responded to another requester with information that likely covers substantially similar material and re-releasing that same material instead of a new search reduces the burden on agency resources, please let me know and I’m happy to consider accepting that instead of requiring a new search.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge and the request is made in the process of public policy research news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Hello Requestor,

The (updated January 2019) employee handbook can be accessed here: https://sfdhr.org/sites/default/files/documents/Forms-Documents/Employee-Handbook.pdf.

Any other new employee orientation materials would be specific to the particular position and usually distributed by the position’s direct supervisor.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind Regards,

Ted Wisinski
