25 NCAC 01D .0201          INITIAL EMPLOYMENT

(a)  A new appointment is the initial employment of an

individual to a position in State government.

(b)  An employee entering into state service in a permanent

or time-limited position shall be given a probationary or trainee appointment.

The probationary and trainee appointment periods shall serve as an extension of

the selection process and to determine whether the person meets satisfactory

performance standards for the work for which employed. The employee shall earn

all the benefits of an employee with a permanent appointment during this time.

(c)  The duration of a probationary appointment shall be 24

months of either full-time or part-time employment. (This probationary period

is not the same as the probationary period prescribed for criminal justice

officers in 12 NCAC 05 .0401.) The duration of the trainee appointment is

established for each regular classification to which a trainee appointment is


(d) The conditions of the

probationary and trainee appointments shall be conveyed to the applicant prior

to appointment. During the probationary or trainee period, the supervisor shall

work with the employee in counseling and assisting the employee to achieve a

satisfactory performance level; progress of the employee shall be reviewed

during discussions between the employee and the supervisor. Following the

probationary period, the employee shall be given a permanent appointment to the

class when the supervisor, in consultation with other appropriate

administrators, determines the employee's performance indicated capability to

become a satisfactory performer and merits retention in the position.  If the

determination is that the employee's performance indicates that the employee is

not suited for the position and does not meet acceptable performance standards,

the employee shall be separated from that position. Employees may be separated

during a probationary appointment for causes related to performance of duties

or unacceptable personal conduct. Employees in trainee appointments who are not

career State employees may also be separated for causes related to performance

of duties or unacceptable personal conduct. Except in cases of alleged

discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, a separation of an employee in a

trainee appointment who is not a career State employee may not be appealed

through the agency grievance process as set forth in G.S. 126-34.01 and the

Office of Administrative Hearings contested case process as set forth in G.S.
