Developing the Rehabilitation Facility Personnel Manual.
Gilbertson, Alan D.
This guide is intended to provide rehabilitation facilities with assistance in developing or improving their facility personnel manual, along with examples of what some rehabilitation facilities are including within their personnel manuals. The introduction to the guide discusses how a facility can begin the formulation of its personnel manual. The remaining nine sections of the publication each deal with one specific aspect of the personnel manual: developing personnel policies; recruitment, screening, hiring, and orientation; hours of work, attendance, and absenteeism; wage and salary administration; seniority, promotions, transfers, and layoffs; employee fringe benefits; disciplinary and grievance policies; termination of employment; and miscellaneous policy statements. Each section contains a brief narrative or overview of what the section covers, and the importance of the section. Finally, each section contains examples of what other rehabilitation facilities have prepared for their personnel manual in order to meet the requirements of the section. A checklist at the end of the publication can be used by the facility to determine which of the policy statements discussed should be developed and placed in its personnel manual. (KC)
