4.5. Status of Employees


4.5.1 Provisional

4.5.2 Probational

4.5.3 Permanent

4.5.4 Job Appointment

4.5.5 Restricted Appointment

4.5.6 Noncompetitive Re–employment

Types of appointments under Civil Service are as follows:

4.5.1 Provisional

This is the appointment of a qualified person in the absence of an adequate eligible list. Provisional appointments terminate upon the regular filling of the positions in any manner authorized under Civil Service rules, but in no event later than 30 days after certification of five or more available eligibles from an appropriate list. If the provisional employee is not on the list or is not within reach for appointment because of a low grade on the examination, employment must be terminated and a qualified candidate from the list of eligibles must replace the employee. Therefore, the provisional employee is urged to take the appropriate examination.

A provisional appointment is, therefore, temporary and indefinite. A provisional employee may be separated by the employing agency at any time.

4.5.2 Probational

This is an appointment of a person to serve a working test period of no less than six months or more than twenty–four months of employment. During this period the employee is closely supervised to determine whether the performance on the job indicates that he or she will probably make a satisfactory or an unsatisfactory employee. An employee whose performance does not meet the required standards may be removed from the position at any time before the expiration of the probationary period, in accordance with Civil Service Rules, without right of appeal.

4.5.3 Permanent

This is the status of an employee who has successfully completed the probationary or working test period. Permanent appointment of a probationary employee shall begin upon certification by the appointing authority.

4.5.4 Job Appointment

The purpose of the job appointment is to accomplish work of a temporary nature for a period not to exceed three years. Employees serving on job appointments do not attain permanent status and may be separated by the employing agency at any time. Job appointees do earn sick and annual leave but payment for services will not be made until time sheets are received.

4.5.5 Restricted Appointment

A restricted appointment authorizes employment not to exceed six calendar months. Under such appointments, these appointees do not attain permanent status, do not earn leave, do not receive payment for holidays, and may be separated by the University at any time. Payment for services will not be made until time sheets are received.

4.5.6 Noncompetitive Re–employment

This is the noncompetitive appointment of a person based on permanent status attained in former employment in the classified service. Subject to provisions of Rule 8.18, a former permanent employee who has been separated from the Service may, within ten years from separation, be non–competitively re–employed in any position for which he or she is qualified and which has the same or a lower entrance salary as the current minimum for the class in which he or she had permanent status. Each former employee who is non–competitively re–employed, except if employed from a Department Preferred Re–employment List, must serve a six–month probationary period from date of re–employment before regaining permanent status. When re–employed, the employee earns sick and annual leave based on verified former state service.
