An appraisal will be considered late if not otherwise submitted in Cornerstone (formerly Saba) by June 8th – compelling reasoning for completing an appraisal outside of Cornerstone must be submitted and reviewed by Employee & Labor Relations prior to submitting paper appraisal.
If unforeseen circumstances (e.g., unexpected leave of absence, illness, etc.) keep Cornerstone submission from occurring, the supervisor must complete a paper appraisal and secure the appropriate department/school signatures. Appraisals completed outside of Cornerstone are a rare exception. When a paper appraisal exception has been granted, all documents must be completed and routed to email@example.com for upload into the employee’s Cornerstone account.
