Attendance at staff meetings, supervisions, and the Quarterly All Staff meeting is required.

• Each staff member will share responsibility to ensure that program needs are met. This includes working on-site at least one evening per week and having a presence in the office during assigned hours. This may include covering groups/clients when another clinician is out, and handling clients who walk-in for treatment.
• The Director approves all changes in staff schedules; including work done at home, and adjusting schedules to meet client needs.
• Only assignments assessed to be well beyond the normal responsibilities of a staff person within the scheduled work-week may result in the specific reduction of total available time which will, in turn, reduce productivity obligations for that individual during that period. Productivity time is earned only through billable clinical service hours.
