6-MONTH TRIAL OR PROBATIONARY PERIOD
An employee who is in a 6-month trial or probationary period must be provided a performance evaluation before the end of the second and fifth months of his or her trial or probationary period.
12-MONTH TRIAL OR PROBATIONARY PERIOD
An employee who is in a 12-month trial or probationary period must be provided a performance evaluation before the end of the third, seventh and 11th months of his or her trial or probationary period.
An employee in permanent status must be provided a performance evaluation annually. Typically, an employee's evaluation date is his or her pay progression date.
FOLLOWING A "DOES NOT MEET STANDARDS" EVALUATION
If an employee receives a "Does Not Meet Standards" overall appraisal, the employee must receive a follow-up appraisal at least every 90 days until a "Meets Standards" overall appraisal is achieved or discipline is taken.
Additionally, performance evaluations may be issued at non-required times due to special circumstances (e.g., supervisor leaving position and wants to provide feedback).
If an employee is eligible for a merit salary increase and a required evaluation (NRS 284.340) is not submitted to the system on time, an employee will be deemed "Meets Standards" for salary purposes and receive his or her merit increase. For that reason, it is recommended that the performance evaluation process begin a month prior to the employee's evaluation date.
