|A phone conversation with Liberty Northwest, the tribe's workers compensation carrier, indicated that Tununak has coverage through September 1, 2011.
Tununak's policies manual, on file at the Bethel RUBA office, contains sections for recruiting and staffing; orientation and training and probationary employment period (90 days) that specify job training/oversight and evaluations. Only three position descriptions were provided (administrator, custodian and finance director), however the tribe's un-adopted organization chart shows nine employees.
Tununak provided blank personnel/payroll action and employee evaluation forms. However, two of Tununak's employees indicated that their supervisor had not given them an annual written evaluation or a private discussion regarding their performance.
Tununak's policies manual does not outline the development of a job notice or the posting/advertising, application evaluation, selection of committee members and evaluation process; all of which should be included in a written hiring process. Tununak's administrative assistant indicated that employee personnel folders do not contain federal I-9 forms or letters of acceptance.
The water utility operator attended a small water systems training in Bethel in April of 2010. The tribal administrator attended a sustained compliance workshop in September of 2010.
