Bargaining Units (See Union Representation)
The BC 102-102 is the form used for all Human Resource transactions, such as hiring, leaves of absence, promotions and terminations. Employing agencies complete a BC 102-102 and submit it to the Office of Management and Budget, which forwards it to the Human Resources Division for approval and processing. Questions about the status of such transactions should be forwarded to your Division, which will contact the Human Resources Division or Payroll Central.
Benefit-eligible employees may receive bereavement leave to attend the funeral of a member of their immediate family. Should the funeral occur within the state of Florida, up to three regularly scheduled workdays of paid leave are provided. Should the funeral occur out of the state of Florida, up to five regularly scheduled workdays of paid leave are provided. Employees whose position is covered by a collective bargaining unit should consult their collective bargaining agreement for the applicable bereavement leave provisions. Immediate family is generally defined as:
- Spouse/registered domestic partner
- A person determined by the Human Resources Director to be "in loco parentis" (in the place of a parent) or another relative domiciled in the employee’s household
Block Budgeting is a streamlined reclassification process by which positions/employees in designated entry level job classifications may be reclassified to designate Journey level job classifications (typically Level II or Senior) within the same job classification series without completing and submitting the Position Classification Questionnaire (PCQ). The complete block budgeting guidelines can be found on the internet at: http://bc-net/Agencies/humanresources/Pages/blockbudgeting.aspx
All employees scheduled eight hours per day are entitled to two 15-minute paid breaks. Employees scheduled 10 hours per day are entitled to two 20–minute paid breaks. One break is in the first half of the shift and one break is in the last half of the shift. Part-time 20-plus employees are eligible for paid breaks for the equivalent of each half day worked. Breaks may not be accumulated from day to day or same day to shorten the workday. Employees should refer to their applicable collective bargaining agreement for provisions relating to breaks.
