All project employees fall under the guidance and general supervision of Community Partners and are expected to follow to all Community Partners policies and procedures. In most cases, the Project Leader reports to the project advisory board; project staff report to either the project leader or someone designated to be responsible for the day-to-day supervision of particular employees. However in terms of day-to-day employee management, the HR team on Community Partners' core staff can assist.
Supervisors play an important role for project staff development and perform tasks such as assigning job responsibilities, conducting performance evaluations, reviewing and signing records of time worked, providing thorough and recurring training, and communicating clear reporting relationships.
The Project Leader must make sure all employees are aware that they are legal employees of Community Partners and not employees of their particular project. Further, Project Leaders are required to consult with Community Partners HR staff regarding any employee discipline, including termination. In addition, it is the Project Leader's duty to make sure all employees are aware of and can avail themselves of the Community Partners HR team, so that employees may review their personnel file and performance record, make complaints about workplace issues, and request other assistance or input as needed.
