California Department of Human Resources

About California Department of Human Resources

The California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) was created on July 1, 2012, by Governor Brown's Reorganization Plan Number 1 of 2011. The reorganization plan consolidated the State of California's two personnel departments, combining the Department of Personnel Administration with certain programs of the State Personnel Board.

CalHR is responsible for issues related to employee salaries and benefits, job classifications, civil rights, training, exams, recruitment and retention. For most employees, many of these matters are determined through the collective bargaining process managed by CalHR.

“I enjoyed the opportunity to refine my research and writing skills. Learning how to gather foundational knowledge and efficiently navigate a deep dive into legal topics I did not know previously was challenging and exciting. I became a more effective memo-writer, especially when it came to "unanswerable" questions. ”
