Probation

Probation: An employee on original appointment or who is reinstated or reemployed to a class not previously held will be on probation until the person completes six months of active service in the position to which appointed.  If a probationary employee is not dismissed during this time, the person will, at the conclusion of the probationary period, have permanent status in that class.  A period of temporary employment immediately preceding a permanent appointment to the same class may, at the request of the employing department, be counted as probationary service.

Permanent employees who are promoted from one class to another, or who transfer out of class, or who demote will serve a period of probation of six months in the position to which appointed.  If the employee is not dismissed during this time, the employee will, at the conclusion of the probationary period, have permanent status in the class.
