 RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Looking for job? State government needs you, according to the human resource professionals in state government.

“We have shortages in many positions, such as nurses and correctional officers,” said Neal Alexander, Director of the Office of State Human Resources (OSHR), in a news release. “By conducting interviews onsite and making conditional offers, we’re expediting the hiring process to fill much-needed vacancies.”

In some cases, candidates are being given conditional offers of employment on the spot. That was case earlier this month when the Department of Public Safety offered jobs to 25 people at a recruitment event at Central Prison Healthcare Complex.

Gov. McCrory Signs Bathroom Privacy Bill Into Law PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A bill ensuring public restroom privacy for both genders has been signed into law by Gov. Pat McCrory following bipartisan passage by the General Assembly.

McCrory signed House Bill 2, the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, Wednesday evening after an 84 - 26 vote in the North Carolina House of Representatives and a 32 to 0 vote in the North Carolina Senate. Senate Democrats left the chamber and did not vote. Eleven House Democrats supported the bill.

H.B. 2 was the product of Wednesday's special  legislative session, called in the wake of the City of Charlotte's passage of a controversial ordinance that would have allowed biological men to use women's restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa. It was supported by the transgender and gay and lesbian community.

Supporters said Charlotte's move was about fending off discrimination. Critics said it was a radical change that upended social norms and put women and children at risk.

“The basic expectation of privacy in the most personal of settings, a restroom or locker room, for each gender was violated by government overreach and intrusion by the mayor and city council of Charlotte," said the governor in a statement. "This radical breach of trust and security under the false argument of equal access not only impacts the citizens of Charlotte but people who come to Charlotte to work, visit or play. This new government regulation defies common sense and basic community norms by allowing, for example, a man to use a woman's bathroom, shower or locker room.

The ACLU issued a news release saying a coalition of liberal groups may sue.
