VQUASK is web site used primarily to capture, maintain and store data to be used when necessary. The web site provides HR with vital information such as; organization charts, job descriptions, and performance evaluations. Additionally, each position must go through an exemption status check to determine overtime eligibility. This data is necessary to determine salary questions, respond to outside agencies, and more importantly assist administrators in decision-making through a compensation system. Please feel free to explore the site and send any issues, concerns, questions and/or comments regarding this site to

ORGANIZATIONAL CHARTS - An organizational chart is a hierarchal representation that defines the structure of an organization in terms of rank. The organizational chart generally plots the relationships between staff, showing directors, managers and other employees. An organizational chart is a graphic representation that only shows formal relationships, lines of authority and responsibility. This is the most important piece of information to be maintained. All the other data supports this document. An organization chart is required for each department and must contain every position and every employee. In an effort to keep the organizations charts consistent and to assist in developing your chart we have created a sample chart that you can access by clicking here: View Sample Organization Chart. Full instructions can be seen at

Position Descriptions are the second part of the puzzle. They are an official written statement of a specific job. It describes the duties, responsibilities of the job. A template is provided for on the vsquask site. To assist with this task, the following may be of assistance for a better understanding of the ADA requirement:


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was enacted in 1938 and is under Federal Wage and Hour statutes. Determining overtime is one of the provisions of the Act. To determine overtime eligibility an employer must determine the exemption status of each position. There are two types of exemption under the FLSA. These are “non-exempt” and “exempt”. A non-exempt employee is paid for all overtime hours worked. Overtime is typically defined as any time worked over 40 hours in a workweek. An exempt employee is not paid for overtime hours worked. There are four categories under which an employee may be considered exempt. They are administrative, executive, professional and computer. These categories generally define an exempt employee as one who customarily and regularly exercises discretion and independent judgment in the performance of his/her duties. Employees must pass Salary and Duty Base Tests (i.e., they must be compensated at a minimum salary that is at least $455/week) to determine eligibility. Therefore, each employee (except faculty employees) will have to complete the Exemption Status Form to determine if they are eligible for overtime pay. The FLSA Flow Chart can assist with the process of determining exemption status, please click HERE to view the chart.



Annual performance evaluations are a key component of an employee’s performance and development. It must be a fair and balanced assessment of an employee's actual performance during a specific review period. Performance Evaluations are intended to provide a chance for open communication with supervisors about performance expectations and feedback. All employees must be evaluated annually. For Civil Service (classified) employees a performance evaluation is the result of a prior year planning session, and must be performed annually. Go to to access the forms and other related information.
For all non-academic (unclassified) employees performance evaluation can be found on this site. The evaluations for these employees must be done each year by July 1.
