Question: What is the process for changing APA member job Descriptions?
Answer: (Please refer to Article III, (Workload of Administrators) Section A (Duties and Responsibilities: Job Descriptions) for complete details.
In a nutshell, the APA Agreement stipulates that every administrator shall have a written job description. Every member should have received a copy of the written job description upon hire, at the midpoint of the provisional period of service (6-months review) and it should be reviewed and acknowledged at each annual evaluation cycle.
As duties and responsibilities grow and change, it is important to make sure these alterations are documented in the latest job description. The President or his/her designee at an Institution may amend or alter a job description, to reflect changes in the organization or department. These changes must be explained and presented to the employee prior to implementation. This includes providing a written copy of the altered job description. The employee is granted seven (7) working days to request a meeting with the President or his/her designee to voice any objections to the altered job description. The President has fourteen (14) calendar days in which to respond.
Employees can only be evaluated on items present in their current job description.
