Many positions in the university include the supervision of one or more employees, and both hourly and administrative staff may be called upon to supervise others. When you supervise university employees, you do so as an agent of Wittenberg University, and, for the most part, Wittenberg will be responsible for the actions you take. As a result, this section of the manual is designed to help you in handling your supervisory functions in a manner consistent with university policy and the university's standards of conduct.
Supervision of employees requires that you thoroughly understand each individual employee's rights, both under the law and under university policy, and particular job responsibilities. For example, if you supervise members of the hourly staff, you are responsible for knowing and understanding university
policies and procedures specific to these individuals.
