HR Handbook – Chapter 1: Definitions
Chapter 1 Rule Reference
Printable PDF of HR Handbook – Chapter 1
Chapter 1 of the Civil Service Rules contains definitions of certain terms used in the rules. These definitions are provided in the rules as a quick reference tool. Not every term is defined, but common terms used in multiple rules are generally included.
The definitions are essentially a job aid provided to assist you in understanding and using the rules. If you are unclear about a term used in the rules, check for a definition. You can also feel free to contact the staff of State Civil Service directly with any questions you may have about rules or procedures.
Because Chapter 1 is simply a glossary of terms, a Rule-by-Rule explanation is not provided for this chapter.
