The Human Resources Department is responsible for the coordination of all issues relating to our current Township employees and those seeking employment with the Township. Some of these responsibilities include maintaining an active database and file system on the near 250 full and part time employees and administering the Township programs for employee health, dental, prescription and life insurance.

The department also coordinates workers compensation insurance for all employees and the approximately 300 volunteers in the areas of emergency services, along with all general liability and property damage claims of which there are approximately 150 per year.

Monroe Township is one of the few Civil Service Communities in the Gloucester County area, along with being a union shop. Therefore, Human Resources is responsible for the coordination and reporting of all job actions to the State of New Jersey. Monroe has a residency restriction for the majority of Township positions, meaning that almost all jobs must be filled by residents, with certain specific exceptions.

Being a Civil Service municipality, Monroe operates under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey Department of Personnel (DOP). The NJ DOP has established and maintains a personnel system that provides a fair balance between managerial needs and employee protection for the effective delivery of public services. The NJ DOP regulates the employment, tenure, and discharge of Monroe Township employees.

Christine Scola is serving the Township in the Human Resources department.

In 2011, she was appointed the Monroe Township claims coordinator. Christine has attended SHRM/PHR preparation courses at Rowan University and holds a Bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University.
