The City of Newport's Human Resources is responsible for:

  • Various policies and programs regarding Labor Relations and Contract negotiations throughout the City.
  • Establishing and implementing sound Employee relations programs and policies for employee development and retention.
  • Recruiting, screening, interviewing, referring and selection of the most qualified applicant for vacant position postings.
  • Advising department heads on issues regarding employer and employee rights, discipline and sound labor policy judgement.
