    Frequently Asked Questions::Can an agency appraise employees entirely and exclusively on team performance?

    Can an agency appraise employees entirely and exclusively on team performance?

    Usually no. The regulations require each employee have at least one critical element based on individual performance. This requirement ensures an appraisal program establishes individual accountability, as the performance appraisal law intended, by providing for the demotion or removal of an employee on the basis of unacceptable performance. However, it is possible to develop a critical element and standard that holds a supervisor, manager or team leader responsible for a team's performance (taking into account their level of leadership responsibilities for the team).
