DISCUSSION:

Bylaws Review: Steve Swan asked Commissioner Cason if the committee could defer the Bylaws discussion until later.   Commissioner Cason asked for a template to gage the committees on and can therefore be completed in similar fashion.

Zenefits.com HR Benefits: Commissioner Cason discussed looking into Zenefits.com as possibly something we can incorporate.  It offers plenty of benefits we may not currently have.

DIRECTOR’S UPDATE:

Sexual Harassment Class: Steve updated the committee of the upcoming Sexual Harassment class scheduled for June 22nd and 23rd.  This will take place in the new building.

Drug Free Work Place: Steve updated the committee and handed out the Drug Free Work Place Section 4.13 suggested changes.  This policy will be reviewed by Legal Counsel and then to the full Commission.  It was suggested that there be more discussion in 1:C as to wearing uniform and conduct in public.  An employee acknowledgment or signature page was also suggested on the last page.  A drug free class is provided each year for employees as well as a DFW monthly newsletter.  These items allow insurance rates to be reduced.
