I. Introduction

This policy applies to employees of the County and County agencies and special districts. Where the policy uses terms such as “employed by the county”, “county employees”, “departments” or “department heads”, these include employees, executives, and policies of the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, the Sonoma County Community Development Commission, The Sonoma County Fair and Exposition, Inc., the Sonoma County Retirement Agency, and the Sonoma County Water Agency.

To assist in reading the policy, a glossary has been included containing key words which are part of applicable state or federal law or statute, or terms more technical in nature. Each time one of these words or phrases is used in the policy, they will be shown in italicized text. Additional documents to assist departments in the administration of this policy (including checklists) are available through the Human Resources Disability Management Unit.
