Personnel Law and Legal Definition

Personnel generally means a body of persons employed in an organization or workplace. The term is generic and doesn't typically distinguish between classifications of those employed, such a full or part-time, temporary or permanent, etc. Precise definitions vary by entity.

The following is an example of one organization's policy dealing with personnel:

Benefits--Personnel employed in a temporary or substitute position shall not be eligible for Board-adopted insurance programs or retirement benefits. These employees shall be covered by Workers' Compensation insurance. The School Board shall pay full retirement contributions after the employee is employed for six (6) months in the same position.
