Although this guide is intended to be a useful tool, it does not and cannot override federal and state law, administrative rules, and collective bargaining agreements.  Further, this guide is not a substitute for on-going agency or professional organization training.  While the intent is to periodically update the material to comply with applicable laws, rules, polices and bargaining agreements, it is incumbent upon the user to use the current and effective laws, rules, policies and agreements.  Where in conflict, the applicable law, rule, policy or bargaining agreement provision takes precedence over information contained in the reference guide.
