Q. We have an employee who works for two different departments, under two different supervisors. Which supervisor should conduct the review, the one with the most seniority? —D.F., Illinois
A. Why not have both managers participate in the employee’s review process, including face-to-face meetings? Whenever an employee performs a significant amount of work for more than one supervisor, it’s best to have all the appropriate supervisors participate in the evaluation process. That really isn’t a legal requirement but makes the most sense business-wise.
