Human Resources and Relationships Committee
The United Church of Canada bylaws require that each pastoral charge has a ministry and personnel committee. At Fairlawn Avenue United Church, this committee is known as the Human Resources & Relationships (HR&R) Committee, and it is a confidential committee accountable to Governing Council.
The HR&R Committee fulfills the human resources function at Fairlawn. The committee is responsible for supporting all ministry and lay personnel in employment matters, and it acts as a liaison between staff and the congregation.
The work of the committee includes:
- reviewing and recommending policies and procedures on human resource management to Governing Council and ensuring policy compliance with current legislation and United Church requirements;
- providing support to staff on human resource matters, including performance and salary reviews, job description reviews, and updates; and
- striving to maintain healthy relationships between staff and the congregation.
Further information on the committee and how it functions can be found in the Terms of Reference for the committee.
