The following types of in-service placement exist wi thin the career service:
(1) No employee shall be eligible to be hired from a promotional register until he or she has gained permanent status; however, a probationary employee may be admitted to a promotional examination if the announcement for the position vacancy has an established closing date and if the employee has served three months of his or her probationary period. Employees who have not completed their original probationary period, if selected, must serve a new probationary period. Employees who are otherwise qualified will be admitted to promotional examinations if they are within two months of the experience required by the minimum qualifications and are assigned to a position which provides qualifying experience.
(2) A permanent employee who is promoted and who fails to satisfactorily complete the probationary period shall be given fifteen calendar days written notice no earlier than ninety days after assuming the position. The Executive Director will notify the employee of the date he or she will automatically revert to his or her former classification. If there are no vacancies in that class, he or she is placed on the reduction-in-force register. An employee who is reverted does not have the right of appeal. If an employee is unable to be placed into another position at the end of a total of 180 days, the employee shall be terminated.
(b) Lateral Movement.
(1) Reassignment: Reassignment is the movement of a permanent employee from one position to another in the same or another class within ASPA with the prior approval of the Executive Director. If a reassignment includes a promotion, the rules governing promotion apply.
(1) Details are intended only for meeting temporary needs of the agency’s or another government agency’s work program when necessary services cannot be obtained by other, more desirable or practical means. Interagency details are particularly appropriate for temporary service in the performance of official government functions such as providing disaster assistance, preparation for Flag Day, or election services.
(2) Detailing employees to other kinds of positions immediately after competitive appointment tends to compromise the competitive principle and is not permitted. Except for an emergency detail of 30 calendar days or less, an employee may not be detailed for at least 3 months after the initial appointment.
(3) ASPA management is responsible for keeping details within the shortest practicable time limits and for making a continuing effort to secure necessary services through use of appropriate personnel actions.
(4) Details for 30 calendar days or more shall be recorded on the prescribed form and maintained as a permanent record in official personnel folders. Details of less than 30 calendar days need not be officially documented, but should be recorded in department records.
(5) All details to higher grade positions will be confined to a maximum period of 120 days unless approved by the Executive Director.
(6) Detail appointments shall be from among those employees who are interested and available to accept such appointments when there are no individuals available who meet the minimum requirements. Primary consideration should, however, be given to eligibles on the agency promotional register for the class or for a related class as determined by the Executive Director.
(7) An employee who accepts a detail for 30 calendar days or more to a higher graded position shall be paid according to the rule regarding promotion. An employee accepting a detail for less than 30 calendar days shall retain his or her current salary.
(8) An employee shall not achieve permanent status in the position to which he or she has been detailed and upon termination of the detail shall be returned to his or her former position.
(1) Demotion may be disciplinary or nondisciplinary, voluntary or nonvoluntary.
(2) An employee who is demoted may not receive pay at a higher rate than he or she received before demotion.History: Rule 11-84, eff 19 Dec 84, (part); and Rule 6-87, eff 14 May 87 § 1.
