Confidential employees are not eligible for inclusion in a bargaining unit represented by an exclusive representative and the terms and conditions of their employment are not controlled by any collective bargaining agreement.

Such terms and conditions of employment shall include, but not be limited to, procedures for evaluation and rules regarding leaves, transfers and reassignments.
