Supervisor's Toolkit

Effective immediately, all final paychecks for terminating employees will be direct deposited. If direct deposit is not possible, the employee should reach out and request the final paycheck be available for pickup or mailed to the address on file. Changes to the mailing address should be noted on the Personnel Action Form when submitted to HR for processing.

Supervisors should visit the COVID-19 website for information and updates.

As a supervisor, you are responsible to promote a positive and productive work environment for your staff, and manage employees' performance. To assist you in understanding your role as a supervisor, take the time to review the HR University-Wide Expectations and the HR Staff Policies, including the Supervisor Expectations Policy. Supervisors are also responsible for enforcing university policies on the CWRU Compliance Office website.

Please email the Human Resources Department at with any questions, concerns, or comments.
