State HR Laws, Rules, and Policies

This information provides general human resource guidance to agency administrators about various employment laws, rules, policies, and benefits. 

The OMB Human Resource Policy Manual (2.3MB pdf) is for official use by the Office of Management and Budget and may be used as a resource by other agencies in development of their human resource policies. While the OMB Policy Manual serves as an example, agency policies should specifically pertain to the agency’s needs and may differ from the OMB Policy Manual. HRMS staff is available to assist in development and/or review of agency human resource policies.

Administrative Rules

HRMS has proposed changes to NDAC § 4-07-13-07 “Uses of sick leave” as a result of bills passed during the 2015 legislative session. A public hearing will be held on August 12, 2016 at 9 a.m. in the Fort Union Room on the Ground Floor of the State Capitol in Bismarck ND. Written and oral comments will be received.
