Conditions of Employment
Completion Of Financial Disclosure May Be Required.
THIS IS A TEMPORARY ASSIGNMENT FOR 6 MONTHS. The selectee will be given a temporary promotion if eligible or be placed on a lateral detail if already serving at the advertised grade level on a permanent basis. This temporary assignment may be ended earlier or extended for up to five (5) years based on management’s needs. It may also be made permanent without further competition. If this temporary assignment is not made permanent, since it is expected to last over one year, the employee will not be returned to his or her permanent position of record, regardless of the duration of the temporary assignment. Instead, the employee will be placed in a position comparable to his or her permanent position of record (at the same grade and pay) in the Division/Office and duty location where the temporary assignment is located. Since the temporary assignment beyond one (1) year will directly impact the employee’s return rights to his or her permanent Division/Office, by accepting the temporary assignment, the employee is also accepting the reassignment to the new Division/Office where the temporary promotion will take place.
At the end of the temporary promotion (if temporarily promoted), the employee’s basic pay will be set at the rate received prior to being temporarily promoted, regardless of length of the temporary promotion. Pay rate shall be increased to reflect pay increases (if any) received while temporarily promoted, as long as the resulting rate does not exceed the new range maximum.
