Christina Webb, Assistant Director

The Human Resources Division provides employee and labor relations support to state-paid judicial branch employees and managers. Among other duties, Division staff maintain comprehensive attendance and leave records for all judicial branch personnel covered by the Supreme Court's Leave of Absence Policies and assist individuals with questions regarding the Supreme Court's personnel policies. Staff also work with judicial branch employees and managers in administering the judicial branch's classification and compensation plan, as well as assisting judicial branch managers in the recruitment and selection process. Additionally, the Division is responsible for EEOC reporting and dissemination of economic interest statements required under Supreme Court Rule 68.

The Division's labor attorneys negotiate collective bargaining agreements state-wide on behalf of chief circuit judges and circuit clerks. The Division is called upon to offer advice relative to employee and labor matters to assure appropriate actions that are just and in compliance with the negotiated agreements, common law rules of the workplace, and federal and state statutes.
