After consultation with appointing powers and other supervising officials the department shall assist and encourage state agencies to establish standards of performance for managerial employees and may provide training in developing performance appraisal systems. Such standards shall be mutually developed by managerial employees and their appointing powers. These standards shall be based on individual and organizational requirements established, in writing, for the reporting period. The reporting period shall be no more than 12 months from the date of the last report following the end of the employee’s probationary period.

19992.9.
  

The system of performance appraisal reports shall be designed by managerial employees and their appointing powers to permit the evaluation by appointing powers of each employee’s work performance as accurately and fairly as is reasonably possible. The evaluation shall be set forth in a written performance appraisal report, the form for which shall be approved by the department. The department may investigate administration of the system and enforce adherence to appropriate standards.

(Added by Stats. 1982, Ch. 938, Sec. 3. Operative July 1, 1983, by Sec. 4 of Ch. 938.)

19992.10.
  

Appointing powers shall prepare performance appraisal reports and keep them on file as prescribed by department rule.

The rules shall provide that managerial employees be shown the performance appraisal report covering their own service and are privileged to discuss it and sign it with the appointing power before it is filed. The extent to which the reports shall be open to inspection by the public shall be prescribed by department rule.

(Added by Stats. 1982, Ch. 938, Sec. 3. Operative July 1, 1983, by Sec. 4 of Ch. 938.)

19992.11.
  

Performance reports shall be considered, in the manner prescribed by department rule, for purposes of employee development, in determining salary increases and decreases, the order of layoffs, the advisability of transfers, demotions, and dismissals. Performance reports shall be considered in promotional examinations in the manner prescribed by State Personnel Board rule. On or before July 1, 1988, performance appraisal reports for managers shall be used to award merit salary increases on a flexible basis so that each such employee may receive up to a 10-percent increase provided that this does not increase the employee’s salary beyond the highest step of the range for the class of position occupied by the employee. The total amount awarded by the appointing power for merit salary increases through this practice shall not exceed the amount which otherwise would be available under current methods.

(Added by Stats. 1982, Ch. 938, Sec. 3. Operative July 1, 1983, by Sec. 4 of Ch. 938.)

19992.12.
  

The department may establish rules under which records of unsatisfactory service may lead to reduction in class and compensation, and providing for the manner in which persons falling below the standards of efficiency may be removed from their positions by the appointing powers, substantially as in the case of removals for cause.

(Added by Stats. 1982, Ch. 938, Sec. 3. Operative July 1, 1983, by Sec. 4 of Ch. 938.)

19992.13.
  

The department shall establish a procedure whereby a managerial employee may appeal his or her performance appraisal report to the appointing power. At a minimum, these procedures shall permit appeals on the basis that the performance appraisal report was used to abuse, harass, or discriminate against the employee.

(Added by Stats. 1982, Ch. 938, Sec. 3. Operative July 1, 1983, by Sec. 4 of Ch. 938.)

19992.14.
  

Each state agency shall establish a system of performance appraisal reports which shall form the basis for awarding merit salary increases to managers on or before July 1, 1988. Any agency which fails to establish such a system on or before July 1, 1988, shall forfeit 50 percent of merit salary funds otherwise available for eligible managerial employees during that fiscal year. Any agency which fails to establish such a system on or before July 1, 1989, shall forfeit 75 percent of merit salary funds otherwise available for eligible managerial employees during that fiscal year. Any agency which fails to establish such a system on or before July 1, 1990, shall forfeit all merit salary funds otherwise available for eligible managerial employees during that fiscal year, and during each subsequent fiscal year during which such a system is not established.
