The HR section of the RPM applies to nonrepresented employees. Employees should refer to the "Who Should Read This Policy" section to see if a specific policy applies to them. This manual is not intended to be, and should not be interpreted as, a contract between Berkeley Lab and any employee. Policies may be changed at any time by the Laboratory. Employees who are represented by an exclusive bargaining agent should refer to their collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
Employees may contact their division's HR Center or email@example.com if they have any questions about an HR policy or procedure.
