Employee Acknowledgement Form


The employee handbook describes important information about ECTOR COUNTY, and I understand that I should consult my supervisor and the Human Resources Department regarding any questions not answered in the handbook. I have entered into my employment relationship with ECTOR COUNTY voluntarily and acknowledge that there is no specified length of employment. Accordingly, either I, or ECTOR COUNTY, can terminate the relationship at will, with or without cause, and with or without notice, at any time, so long as there is no violation of applicable federal or State law. I further understand that hiring, firing, and disciplinary procedures may differ in each County department.
Since the information, policies, and benefits described here are necessarily subject to change, I acknowledge that ECTOR COUNTY retains the right to change this handbook, and to modify or cancel any of its employee benefits when the need for change is recognized. All such changes will be communicated through official notices, and I understand that revised information may supersede, modify, or eliminate existing policies. Only the Commissioners’ Court of ECTOR COUNTY has the ability to adopt any revisions to the policies in this handbook. I understand and acknowledge that I have a responsibility as an ECTOR COUNTY employee to keep informed of any such changes.
Furthermore, I acknowledge that this handbook is neither a contract of employment (stated or implied) nor a legal document. I understand that no representative or agent of the County has the authority to give or extend the time period of my employment. I further understand that as an ECTOR COUNTY employee, I have a personal responsibility to provide quality service to the public, to achieve the highest degree of safety possible for my fellow workers, to continually make suggestions for improvements and to display a spirit of teamwork and cooperation.
I understand that I will be granted compensatory time off in lieu of payment for overtime to the extent provided by law and I may be required to take earned compensatory time at the County’s discretion. I understand that it is my responsibility to read and comply with the policies contained in this handbook and any revisions made to it. I understand the most updated version will be found on the Human Resources Policy website.
