After making reasonable efforts to train and coach a new employee, if the employee is clearly not meeting the requirements of the job the employee should be released during the probationary period. The Civil Service Rules, Section 9.7 states that a probationary employee may be dismissed at any time during the probationary period without right of appeal or hearing with the Civil Service Commission.
Note: Employees who are promoted from a classified position have the right to return to their previous position if they are released from probation. To ensure compliance with applicable rules, laws, and policies, please consult your assigned Human Resources Analyst when you consider releasing a probationary employee.
Please contact your department’s Human Resources Recruitment and Classification Analyst regarding any question related to probation, release from probation, and release from assignment.
