In addition, the HR team acts as a resource for compliance information and ensures that the diocese is in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws regarding employment issues.

Human Resources Policies & Guidelines

“Personnel Policies for Parishes and Schools” in the Diocese of Boise were revised, April 17, 2017. The policies govern the relationship between the diocese and employees in our diocesan parishes and schools. They do not constitute contract status.

Under certain circumstances, the pastor or building principal may determine that a different policy would be more appropriate for that location. In those circumstances, a written request must be submitted to the Diocesan Director of Human Resources. If a different policy is adopted for a location, that policy must be in writing and receive the written approval of the Diocesan Director of Human resources.

In addition, locations may choose to implement additional policies on topics that are not covered in these policies. Any questions about appropriate policies governing personnel issues should be directed to the diocesan Director of Human Resources for his/her written approval.

The “Parish/School Human Resource Manual” revised, July 1, 2014  is provided to implement policy and support local parish and school efforts by providing useful information. This manual, while not “official policy,” supplements the official personnel policies of the Diocese, by providing parish/school leaders with practical advice, information, forms, checklists and other resources to assist parish/school leaders in managing the church’s most important resource—its people.
