Whether your institution is public or private, large or small, or residential or commuter, your college or university likely has a performance evaluation process in place.

In addition to being a valuable tool for measuring employee performance and holding employees accountable to workplace expectations, performance evaluations also provide evidence of performance history and create a record that can either support or contradict an employer's legitimate reasons for promoting an employee or otherwise taking some sort of adverse employment action against them. Indeed, consistent, truthful, and objective evaluations position institutions favorably when they are called on to defend wrongful termination, discrimination, or retaliation claims.

This webinar, hosted by NACUA, will explore core legal issues related to performance evaluations. Using case studies and case law, presenters will distill practical tips for attendees to refine their existing employee evaluation practices. In addition to discussing core legal issues, presenters will also examine special issues related to:

  • Faculty performance,
  • New supervisors and changing expectations, and
  • Special issues related to disability, leave, and accommodation requests

Attendees should leave the webinar with a sense of the legal importance of thorough and accurate performance evaluations, as well as practical tips for strengthening and refining existing practices.
