Probationary Period

New probationary staff employees must successfully complete a probationary period of service before permanent status may be granted. A classification change during the probationary period may result in an employee having to serve a new probationary period. An employee is required to serve a probationary period upon promotion to a higher classification or skill level. Completion of a new probationary period is required of an employee whose position is reclassified to recognize a significant change in duties and responsibilities.

The department administrator must consult with Human Resources prior to initiating termination of a probationary employee. Termination of a staff employee during probationary period is addressed in the applicable collective bargaining agreements or CSU policy.
