Performance appraisal process and dates

Each manager and supervisor is required by UC policy and by the applicable labor contract to conduct performance appraisals. Employees hired before January 1, 2020 will be reviewed in this year’s process. Those hired after January 1, 2020 should receive informal feedback on their performance. Performance appraisals are required for:

  • Probationary employees: A probationary employee shall be assessed at least once during a full probationary period, preferably at the mid-point of probation; and,
  • Career employees: A career employee's performance shall be assessed in writing at least once per year.
  • Contract employees: A contract employee should receive a written appraisal at least once per year.
