Performance evaluations are developmental tools that assess an employee’s job-related strengths and weaknesses.
Supervisors are encouraged to work with each employee to assist in developing to their full potential. Evaluations are also used when an employee is applying for another position on campus or when it may be necessary to document an employee’s performance history.
All AFSCME employees are subject to a seven (7) month probationary period. For part-time employees, the probationary period extends until the employee has worked the equivalent of seven (7) months of full-time equivalent continuous employment. During the probationary period, there are two reviews: one at three (3) months and one at six (6) months. At both of these reviews, the supervisor performing the evaluation will make a recommendation for retention or termination.
After the probationary period is over, performance reviews will be conducted annually. At this time, the supervisor will also review the employees' job description and update it to reflect any changes to the position.
After all evaluations, employees are entitled to review the paperwork prior to it being sent to the CEO. Employees also have the right to request a meeting with their supervisor (within 7 days) to discuss the evaluation prior to the transmittal of the paperwork to the CEO.
All evaluations with be included in the employee’s official personnel file.
