§ 2-208.08. Probation upon promotion.  

Latest version.
  • (a) A promoted employee will serve a minimum six (6) month probationary period or a maximum one (1) year as designated by the department head. If the promoted employee does not successfully complete the probationary period, the employee may be returned to the position from which he was promoted with the approval of the department head only if a vacancy exists. If the former position is filled, reasonable effort will be made to place the employee in a comparable position. However, if a vacancy does not exist and if it is impractical to create a new position, the employee will be released.

    (b) Upon approval of the city manager, a portion of the promotion probation period may be waived if the employee's performance is satisfactory.
