      I’m posting this on behalf of the League Personnel Committee.

      By a show of hands at the last Personnel Committee meeting, quite a few Directors indicated that they believed they were “At Will” employees. They were surprised to learn that 63.2-219 of the Code [Board to establish employee entrance and performance standards] stipulates that “The grievance procedure [that the local DSS or local board is required to establish] shall apply to employees, INCLUDING local directors, of the local boards and local departments.” Another words, if LDSS Directors have grievance rights, they are not “At Will” employees.

      The Personnel Committee determined that this item should be incorporated into State provided Local Board training. Additionally, the Committee recommended that this information be share with the League membership thru this forum.
