The Law at City Hall
We believe that it is in the best interest of the organization and our employees to have written personnel policies to help the city meet our mission, goals, and objectives; to prevent misunderstandings and problems; to ensure that all employees know what is expected of them; and in limiting our legal exposure.
The City of Lauderdale Lakes is committed to creating and maintaining workplace policies for all employees that mirror state and federal laws as well as promote a productive, legal, safe, and harmonious work environment.
We depend upon every employee for the successful development and implementation of a fair and equitable policy and procedural system.
