Hiring and Supervising Employees


Position Descriptions

HR maintains all current position descriptions (PD) for roles across campus within the PeopleAdmin system. It is important that the University maintains up-to-date PDs for all positions in order to adequately assess an employee’s promotability, eligibility for merit- and performance-related increases, and compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, among many other purposes.  

The Office of Human Resources asks each supervisor on campus to review their departmental PDs on an annual basis. This annual review should be done in conjunction with completing the performance goals and objectives each fall. Additionally, any time a supervisory change, position change or change in duties occurs, the PD should be updated as well.
