114.36.2 Purpose

The purpose of a limited-term transfer is to more efficiently utilize and exchange human resources among the departments of the City and County; to allow employees exposure and training in other departments; and to provide a mechanism for reducing staffing levels during slow periods or periods of fiscal emergency and to temporarily increase staffing during peak work periods.

114.36.3 Types of Limited-Term Transfers

1) Voluntary: A limited-term transfer may be initiated on the written request of an employee on the form prescribed by the Human Resources Director. Upon receipt of a written request from an employee and no less than fifteen (15) working days prior to implementation, the designated union of the employee shall be provided written notice. The union shall have five (5) working days from the date of the notice to request a meeting with the appointing officer/designee. Within five (5) working days from the date of the union request, a meeting shall be held . If the union is unavailable to meet within the five (5) working days following the request to meet, the unavailability of the union shall constitute a waiver of the right to meet. Unavailability of the appointing officer/designee shall constitute an extension of the timelines. The timelines may also be extended through mutual written agreement.

2) Mandatory: A permanent or probationary employee may be transferred by the employee's appointing officer for a specified period up to a maximum of six (6) months in any calendar year to a position in the same class under another appointing officer. Such transfers shall be made by class in reverse order of seniority in the class in the department after all permanent and probationary employees in the class have been canvassed and all more senior employees have been notified and have waived the right to request a voluntary limited-term transfer. The employee shall receive at least five (5) working days written notice in advance of the effective date of the transfer and shall be given an opportunity, if requested, to meet and confer with the appointing officer/designee and the designated union representative. No permanent employee shall be placed on mandatory limited-term transfer if there are temporary or provisional employees in the same class in the department from which the transfer originates.

114.36.4 Expiration and Extension

1) Limited-term transfers will remain in force for the period specified unless abridgment is approved by both appointing officers.

2) Voluntary limited-term transfers may be extended for additional periods of time with the approval of the employee, the appointing officer and the Human Resources Director.

3) Upon expiration of the period of the transfer, the transferee shall be automatically reinstated to a permanent position in the class and department from which transferred.

114.36.5 Probationary Period

1) A limited-term transferee shall not serve a new probationary period; however, notwithstanding any other provision of these Rules, with the approval of the appointing officer in the department to which transferred, the time served during a limited-term transfer, or a portion thereof, may be counted toward the completion of the probationary period if the transferee requests and is granted a permanent transfer and commences a probationary period in the new department.

2) An appointee who is transferred under the provisions of this Rule while serving a probationary period in the department from which transferred shall complete the probationary period upon reinstatement to the original department; however, an appointing officer may, notwithstanding any other provision of these Rules, credit the time served during a limited-term transfer or a portion thereof toward the completion of the probationary period in the original department.

114.57.8      With respect to the decision of the Elections Commission to remove the Director of Elections, the Civil Service Commission shall either:

2)    If an appeal on the decision of the Elections Commission to remove the Director of Elections is filed within the time period for filing an appeal, upon the hearing and decision of the appeal by the Civil Service Commission, if the Civil Service Commission upholds the removal for cause.
