The Local Health Personnel Branch works to ensure employees in the local health departments and applicants receive the highest quality human resource services. The branch specifically addresses the areas of employment counseling, applicant processing, maintaining and updating selection criteria, maintaining employee records, creation of job classifications and salary computation.
This branch is responsible for personnel system operations and maintenance for 58 of Kentucky's 61 local health departments. It also provides support to the five-member Local Health Department Employment Personnel Council.
The merit system for local health departments (LHDs) is administered by the state Department for Public Health and establishes uniform personnel practices for Kentucky’s LHDs.
The merit system promotes recruitment of qualified individuals for the public health workforce, retains employees with a program of benefits and compensation and protects the rights of employees during their service.
This website provides information for local health department employees, state offices, potential applicants for employment and the general public regarding the personnel program and policies for local health departments.
