Performance evals and rehired annuitants


Q. Do supervisors have to issue performance appraisals on rehired annuitants since they work at the behest of the employer? We have been requested to do that, and I do not see the value.

A. Yes, you do have to issue performance appraisals. Rehired annuitants are covered under an agency’s performance management system. Also, there’s a second reason for doing them. If your agency asks you to do them and you don’t, your own performance appraisal could be adversely affected.
