SECTION 36-4-7



   § 36-4-7  Probationary period in

noncompetitive branch – Acquisition of full status. –

Persons appointed to positions in the noncompetitive branch shall serve a

probationary period of six (6) months during which time the appointing

authority shall report to the personnel administrator every sixty (60) days

concerning the work of the employee and at the end of the probationary period

no further salary or other compensation shall be paid to the employee unless

the appointing authority has filed with the personnel administrator a

statement, in writing, that the services of the employee have been satisfactory

and that it is desired that his or her services be continued. The probationary

period is further defined to be one hundred-thirty (130) days worked in the

non-competitive position to which the person has been appointed. Upon

completion of the probationary period and receipt of the statement of

satisfactory service by the personnel administrator and having fulfilled the

requirements for character and physical condition, the employee shall be deemed

to have acquired full status and shall enjoy all the rights and privileges of

that status. Whenever a class of positions shall be assigned to the

noncompetitive branch, every employee holding a position in that class at the

time of assignment who is a temporary employee and has served in that class for

six (6) months or more shall be considered to have completed the required

probationary period and upon receipt of a statement from his or her appointing

authority that his or her services have been satisfactory shall be deemed to

have acquired full status and shall enjoy all the rights and privileges of that

status. A temporary employee who has served at least four (4) months but has

not completed six (6) months shall be deemed to have served four (4) months of

the required probationary period and his or her appointing authority shall

submit a report concerning the work of the employee to the personnel

administrator and shall at the end of sixty (60) days submit a final

probationary report for the employee. An employee who has served at least two

(2) months but has not completed four (4) months shall be deemed to have served

two (2) months of the required probationary period and his or her appointing

authority shall submit a report concerning the work of the employee to the

personnel administrator and shall subsequently submit a probationary report at

the end of the next sixty (60) days and a final probationary report at the end

of six (6) months of service.
