This is the first edition of the "Guidelines to Professional Employment for Engineers and Scientists" as recently approved by the IEEE Board of Directors. The guidelines were developed as the result of the efforts of 17 engineering societies, including IEEE, to answer the need for scientists and engineers to play a larger role in the development of employment policies--a need that became particularly evident when the large-scale layoffs and relocations of recent months revealed certain deficiencies on the part of some employers. It is emphasized that the guidelines are by no means to be considered final and complete as they stand, but are in a state of dynamic change. The document is subject to periodic review by the participating societies for the sake of keeping it current, and a mechanism has been set up for incorporating revisions and amendments into future editions. However, even in this preliminary form the guidelines should help to provide a firm basis for the employment of professional engineers and scientists and are expected to have significant impact in improving relations for employers of these professionals.
