Fixed Term Positions at the County

Fixed term positions are regular, budgeted positions that are limited in duration due to related funding source, project duration, or coverage for a regular employee who is on extended leave.

Fixed term positions may end prior to their scheduled ending date if funding ceases or the work is complete.  In addition, fixed term positions may continue beyond their scheduled ending date if funding is renewed or extended.  Per PMR 48.2, fixed-term employees are not subject to Reduction in Force rights at the completion of the term.

Current Regular Hire Employees who fill a Fixed Term Position

Current regular hire County employees who subsequently fill a fixed term position may, if pre-approved by the appointing authority, retain their status as a regular hire employee throughout the term of the fixed term appointment.

Eligible Lists

Eligible lists are lists of candidates who have successfully passed the examination steps in a recruitment. This list is used to refer candidates to a hiring authority for a selection process. Eligible lists established from recruitments will be used to fill the current vacancies and any future vacancies which may occur in a classification while the list remains active.  Eligible lists remain active for a minimum of six (6) months for open, competitive recruitments and a minimum of one (1) year for promotional recruitments.

Appealing a Recruitment/Selection Decision

There are two appeals procedures available to a candidate, examination appeals and selection appeals.

Selection Appeals

Selection Appeals are for those certified to a hiring authority for consideration for appointment to a vacant position. The sole basis for a selection appeal is failure to follow uniform, job related selection procedures. For selection appeal procedures, please refer to PMR 33.6.
