WORK ASSIGNMENTS AND WORK REPORTS
After completion of the A&O Program, you will be assigned to a work detail, based primarily on institution needs. For initial arrivals you remain unassigned until you are medically cleared. Factors considered in determining a specific work assignment are: your physical condition, educational level, previous work experience, general aptitude, ability to benefit from training, and plans for the future. Job assignments and changes are made by the Job Assignment Committee which consists of the Associate Warden of Programs, Case Management Coordinator, and Unit Manager.
Reports which evaluate yourwork performance will be prepared by your supervisor every 90 days or every 30 days if work reports are below-average. These performance reports are also used to help determine your eligibility for participation in community activities (i.e., furloughs). Unsatisfactory work reports may result in restriction from community programs.
You may be assigned housekeeping duties by your unit officer. The correctional counselor is responsible for officially assigning an inmate to a paid work assignment. Prior to being assigned a work detail, an inmate must be medically cleared. Designated inmates are to accept work assignments and housekeeping tasks, unless he or she is physically unable to do so. Arestriction slip from the Health Services Department is required for medical restrictions. Ordinarily, your unit team will assign you to a work detail. You are required to work at that position for 90-days prior to requesting a job assignment change. Any such request should be directed to your unit team through your detail supervisor.
