Attendance

You should call your department supervisor if you are going to be tardy or absent from the assignment. Repeated tardiness or absences can affect your current and future assignments or your employment at Duke. Please notify your department supervisor if you need to leave your assignment early due to illness or an emergency. In case of inclement weather, please contact your department supervisor.

Reminder: Any time taken off from an assignment must be coordinated with your department supervisor.

Employee Evaluation

As a DTS employee, you are evaluated by your department supervisor during each assignment. This electronic evaluation is reviewed by your DTS employment representative. While employed at Duke, you may request to review your evaluations by calling your DTS employment representative.

Since subsequent assignments are based on prior evaluations, it is important to do your best and be conscious of your performance. If your performance is unsatisfactory, you will be counseled by your DTS employment representative and, if necessary, the DTS manager. Such counseling could lead to termination of employment.

ID Badges

You will be issued a form to get a free photo ID badge at the Duke Services Center, Duke Clinic, Red Zone basement, Room 04230. An appointment is not needed.

You must upload a picture to the DukeCard website prior to visiting the DukeCard Office. Please go to the DukeCard website, click on the "Submit Photo" circle at bottom of screen and follow the directions to take a selfie. You will need to log in with your NetID, password and multi-factor authentication to upload your photo to the DukeCard Office. This may be done using a cell phone.

Your ID badge will be valid for six (6) months. When your ID badge expires, contact DTS to obtain another. There is no charge if the ID badge is expired. However, if you lose your ID badge you will be responsible for purchasing a replacement. You should always wear your ID badge while working on Duke premises. The ID badge must be returned to DTS if you terminate employment or transfer from DTS.
