Reclassification Policy - Probationary Period
For interpretation of this policy, please contact the responsible department: Associate Vice President, Human Resources, 909/537-5138
When an employee is reclassified through the job audit process into a higher classification, a new probationary period may be established. If a new probationary period is established, the probationary performance evaluation process is initiated.
If the probationary period is one year, three evaluations are required to be conducted after 3, 6 and 9 months of service in the new classification. If the probationary period is two years, three evaluations are required to be conducted after 6, 12 and 18 months of service in the new classification.
An employee whose position has been reviewed and reclassified according to the reclassification review process may be granted a waiver of the full probationary period if the following criteria are fulfilled:
- A regular performance evaluation has been conducted during the period of time the employee has been performing the higher level duties.
- The employee has been rated as excellent as an overall rating.
- The immediate supervisor has recommended a waiver of the probationary period and the appropriate division Vice President concurs with the recommendation.
