Finance & Human Resources Issue Guidelines for Proposed Hiring and Promotions Freeze


On Tuesday, January 30, the Directors of Finance and Human Resources jointly released guidelines on a proposed hiring and promotions freeze to all Metro Departments Heads and Elected Officials. The guidance comes days after the freeze was recommended by the Director of Finance as part of a supplemental funding package for Nashville General Hospital.

The memo notes that front-line public safety positions would not be affected by the proposed freeze, nor would step-increases or target-classes for purposes of promotions and pay.
