I'll assume this was a joke. The supervisor is ultimately responsible for the content of the report. And yes, it is his job to train the trainee.

Anyone who signs the report is responsible for it. Read the certifications you're signing.

Yes Ma'am...you are correct. Common sense tells me that if a trainee is doing as he/she was trained and the supervisor reviews and signs the report, that supervisor should be swinging if the report tanks. But then, common isn't so common anymore...:shrug:

In legalese, joint and several liability - both parties are responsible for 100% of the work.

P.S. - usually when this question is asked, it's in hopes that you can blame the other signor of the report. :-(

how is responsible on the appraisal report
how, who, whatever. Each are equally culpable therefore I eschew the services of a 'true' trainee even though I am forced to call my assistant a "trainee" although she has 14 yr. experience....

Smokey, how does one establish the level of negligence on the part of a trainee under the guidance of his/her supervisor? While there is a certain expectation that a trainee has, at least, general appraisal knowledgeable and would therefore be exposed to some form of liability for negligence, it seems the supervisor would assume the lions share of the liability. Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey were booted out of the Marine Corps for conduct unbecomming a U.S. Marine because they did not make an appropriate distinction between a legal order and illegal order while the assumption was that the typical Marine recruit would have been able to do so. At the same time, Lieutenant Kendrick and Colonel Jessup were going to serve time for giving the order.
