When a supervisor finds there is a need to hire a new employee, whether to replace a terminating employee or because of an increase or change in workload, the first step will be to complete a Position Requisition form. The form will then be approved by a Department Chair or Administrative Manager and forwarded on to Human Resources for assessment.
