The following policies apply to employees of the Arizona Department of Administration. These policies and procedures replace earlier versions, which are no longer printed or distributed. The ADOA Director, or designee, reserves the right to modify, revoke, suspend, terminate or change any of the provisions of these policies and procedures, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice. These policies and procedures do not create rights or privileges for employees nor add duties or responsibilities for management. The failure of a supervisor to follow any procedure in these policies and procedures shall not create any rights for any subordinate employee. No contract of employment is created by these policies and procedures. Nothing in these policies changes the fact that all uncovered employees are at-will employees and serve at the pleasure of the appointing authority. State of Arizona employees who are covered are granted certain rights and responsibilities. However, no employee acquires employee rights in excess of, or in addition to those authorized under the State Personnel Rules or Arizona Revised Statutes. Nothing in these policies and procedures should be interpreted to conflict with Federal or State laws or rules. If a conflict is discovered, the appropriate laws or rules control.
State agencies may use these ADOA policies as templates in developing similar policies for their agency’s use. Please contact the Policy & Legislative Services Section (100 North 15th Avenue, Suite 261, Phoenix, Arizona 85007, 602.542.5482) to obtain a Word version of any of these documents.
