University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Employee Handbook

Approved Position Descriptions

An approved, written position description exists for each staff position in the College.  In general, the description covers the purpose of the job, the work to be done, the supervision of the work, the qualifications required, and, where appropriate, working conditions affecting the job. The hiring supervisor and the Human Resources staff will collaboratively maintain accurate position descriptions.  Applicants for employment should be asked to read the position description of the position for which they are applying; incumbent employees should be asked to review and sign the Position Description for their positions, acknowledging that review. (A copy of the signed Position Description must be sent to Human Resources for appropriate filing in the employee’s personnel file.) All position descriptions are reviewed periodically to assure that they reflect current responsibilities. The Dean of the Faculty has responsibility for all faculty position descriptions. Employees' performance shall be reviewed in relation to the written position descriptions.

Position vacancies cannot be advertised or posted on the College’s website until a current position description has been reviewed/revised and authorized by the supervising director or vice president and submitted to the Office of Human Resources.
