If a former probationary employee was found to be incompetent or unqualified as set forth in 10.C of these Rules, they may petition the Director of the Office of Human Resources for reinstatement to the eligible list from which they were certified if the list has not expired. The Human Resources Director may grant or deny such petition at his or her discretion. If the former probationary employee was separated because of fault or delinquency on their part, they may not be reinstated to the eligible list for one year following their separation of probation. If reinstatement is granted, the former probationer will be placed on the eligible list in the order of their original examination score.
This rule 10.E shall not apply to promotional eligible lists. In the case where a former probationer was hired from a promotional eligible list, and if an original entrance list exists and has not expired, the former probationary employee may petition to be placed on the original entrance list that was established from the examination that created the promotional eligible list from which they were hired. If reinstatement to the original entrance list is granted for the promotional employee, the former probationer will be placed on the eligible list in the order of their original examination score.
Notwithstanding 10.B as set forth in these Rules, if re-hired under either of the above provisions, the employee’s probationary period and seniority date will begin upon commencement of their new date of hire.
