Human Resources

The Human Resources Division is a strategic partner in supporting the DC Courts’ overall mission and is committed to developing and administering comprehensive programs grounded in recruiting, retaining and supporting a diverse, highly qualified, and talented work force.

The Human Resources Division has various responsibilities to the Courts and their employees. A main function of the Human Resources Division is to recruit and retain employees. The Division uses a variety of sources to reach the most qualified candidates, such as www.usajobs.opm.gov and recruits through a comprehensive application and testing process. Employees of the Courts qualify for Federal retirement, health, life insurance, and long-term care benefits, as well as other employee benefit programs, including a dental and vision plan, and a commuter option program.

The Human Resources Division must also implement the personnel policies adopted by the Joint Committee on Judicial Administration and maintain employees' official personnel records. The Division serves as the focal point for compliance with Federal and local statutes prohibiting discrimination in employment and promoting equal opportunity for women and members of minority groups who seek employment or participate in Court programs.

The District of Columbia Courts are an equal opportunity employer and we follow ADA requirements.
