Evaluation is an ongoing process that can be implemented on a daily basis. It lets the employer offer both praise and precise, constructive criticism to the employee.
This feedback, given in a timely fashion, often motivates the employee and improves job performance. Evaluations are not required but are encouraged based on their proven tendency to yield positive results.
Employers can choose to provide raises at the beginning of a hiring period for biweekly continuous or Work-Study (i.e. summer or academic year) positions, or can provide a raise during an employment period.
If a raise is provided after an appointment has been finalized, a Change of Status Form must be submitted by the employer via Employee Self Service and the HR Transaction system. The raise should be effective with the beginning date of a biweekly pay period.
