Darlene Harper, Leave & ADA Specialist
Darlene began working in Human Resources when it was commonly referred to as Personnel, which equates to having two decades of experience. In addition to working directly in Human Resources, she has ten years’ experience working with retirement plans. During her career, she has focused on employee relations and compliance ensuring employees receive the most benefit within the parameters of company policy and regulations. This focus has allowed opportunities for creating and facilitating training, ensuring harassment/discrimination is addressed appropriately, employment protections (including Affirmative Action Plans, Equal Employment Opportunity Plans, FMLA, and ADA), and benefits (insurance, vacation & leave options, company perks, etc.).
During her career she has filled many roles including several years as Human Resources Manager. While employed with Salt Lake City, beginning in 2012, she has filled the role as subject-matter expert related to work authorization, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Equal Employment Opportunity ((EEO) harassment/discrimination), and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Her current role with the City is FMLA and ADA Specialist and she encourages employees to reach out to her with questions, concerns, or needs they have related to FMLA or ADA.
