Best Practices for Shared Staff Appointments

  • Include the staff member whose appointment would be shared in the discussions and be sure that they are in agreement with the plan.
  • Make sure there is a written agreement, via memorandum of understanding (MOU) or email at a minimum, regarding the shared appointment. Be sure to address financial commitment, effort coverage, and beginning and end dates for the agreement. Depending on the arrangement, it may also be helpful to also address physical work space/location, time off approval, supervision and IT support and/or access.
  • Staff should track the hours they work for each unit so that the effort breakdown can be continuously assessed and adjusted as needed and agreed upon by both units.
