WHO WE ARE
The Human Resources Department provides an array of support services to applicants, staff members, and our constituent School Districts.
The Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 is an equal-opportunity employer and prides itself on its recruitment and selection procedures. The Human Resources Department is instrumental in advertising for open positions, the collection and processing of application packets, and responding to applicant inquiries. Our goal is to attract qualified applicants who will assist CLIU #21 with Helping Children Learn.
The Human Resources Department serves as a resource center for our 1200 plus employees on a wide variety of employment-related questions. The Human Resources Department maintains an “open door” policy and encourages staff members to contact the Department as a first line resource for questions. Examples of support services that the Human Resources Department specifically provides to staff members include benefits, Workers’ Compensation, certification, parenting/medical leaves, absence request processing, personnel file review, and employment opportunities.
Striving to serve, as well as to collaborate, the Human Resources Department facilitates various committees and consortiums to aide districts in obtaining the highest level of service at the most cost-effective means. The Human Resources Department facilitates a healthcare consortium for participating Lehigh County Districts and a substitute teacher training and emergency permit program. In addition, to assist our Districts in obtaining the most up-to- date personnel information and an opportunity to network, the Department coordinates monthly Human Resource Contact meetings.
Finally, the Department will conduct Human Resources Reviews for a requesting District and act as a resource for personnel issues when called upon.
