Provisional Period for Educators

     When a person begins work as a regular employee for the University, he or she is considered a provisional employee.  The employee's period of provision starts on the employee's first day of regular employment and lasts until the employee has completed twelve (12) consecutive months of regular employment status.

     During the provisional period such an employee cannot use the Staff Appeal Procedure, and the employee's employment may be terminated during the provisional period without recourse to the procedure.  If a provisional employee accepts a different job within the University, the employee will serve a new provisional period.  An employee who has completed a Fixed-Term I appointment will not start a new provisional period on reappointment if the employee is to be reappointed to that position on a Fixed-Term I or Standing appointment within three (3) consecutive months following termination of the appointment.
