Personnel Services

KLC Personnel Services provides several services to Kentucky cities. From answering your questions about personnel law to drafting policies to providing training, KLC is here to help!

Cities should always consult with their city attorney before implementing changes.

Personnel Policy Review and Updates

Cities are unique. When it comes to personnel issues, you need someone who has expertise in personnel law and human resource matters and also knows municipal law. KLC works with cities to review and draft city personnel policies. Contact us for additional details or download our informational brochure

Certified City of Ethics

The KLC Certified City of Ethics program recognizes cities and city officials that have adopted principles and procedures that offer guidance on ethical issues and a mechanism to resolve complaints at the local level.

Legal Questions

Even the most seasoned city official can face unexpected roadblocks without proper preparation, whether hiring, firing, disciplining, or promoting an employee. Day-to-day personnel issues, like crafting job descriptions, handling FMLA or other leaves of absence, and posting the correct labor posters can lead to bigger problems if not handled correctly. Additionally, when ethics issues come up, cities often have questions about how to proceed. If your city faces a personnel decision or ethics dilemma—big or small—valuable services and resources are just a phone call or email away.


KLC not only provides training to cities at several of KLC’s annual conferences and webinars, but we can also assist cities with individualized training such as Certified Drug-Free Workplace, hiring and retention, discipline and termination, wage and hour laws, personnel files, managing leaves of absence, performance management, customer service, sensitivity, diversity and harassment, as well as basic supervisory skills. Cities completing the personnel policy update can choose to have customized training on the new employee handbook for their employees.

Additional Resources

Are you drafting a new job description and have writer’s block? Is your city considering a new social media policy? Are you looking to update your leave policies? KLC Personnel Services have various model policies, samples, and checklists to help you get started on your next project.
