smiling employees


For almost 100 years, the Los Angeles Community College District has provided a broad range of educational programs and services to facilitate the lifelong process called education. Our employees – faculty, classified staff, and administrators – are responsible for creating the unique educational environment in which our students obtain the educational and training building blocks that will make their lives and careers more fulfilled and rewarding.  Few jobs are more important. Few organizations have such a capable, talented and diverse group of individuals as employees.

This handbook is intended to give classified employees an overview of the District and its employment policies, procedures, services and benefits. It will not answer all questions but will serve as a good starting point if you are a new employee and as a quick reference throughout your employment.

You are encouraged to spend time and become familiar with the contents and to consult with your supervisors and District Human Resources staff. In addition to this online version of the handbook, a downloadable pdf of the information in this handbook is available on the Employee Intranet on the Personnel Commission SharePoint site (accessible via employee intranet only).

Some of the links included in this site are only available via the employee intranet. If you are not a current District employee and wish to view any of these links, please contact us at @email and a member of our staff can assist you.

We are very interested in your suggestions or comments on how we may better serve you. Please email us at @email with any questions, comments, or suggestions.

Thank you for your service and commitment to the District.
