Probationary. This category describes persons taken on strength on a probationary basis with the prospect, if their services are found satisfactory, of a change of category to Regular full-time or Regular part-time (Section 1.2, following).
Probationary c. Tenured and non-tenure track faculty in the affected department shall be laid off in inverse order as described in Article 29. However, in departments or programs where positions are financed by monies from an outside jurisdiction or agency and are occupied by fixed-term or probationary faculty, such faculty may continue to hold such positions in reduced departments or programs unless there are tenured faculty members qualified to fill such positions as determined by the President. A tenured faculty member who has at least twenty (20) FTE years of service within the Minnesota State Universities, shall remain available for assignment and shall not be laid off. For purposes of reaching the twenty (20) FTE years of service threshold, service through the date on which the faculty member’s lay-off would otherwise be effective, shall be considered. For those tenured faculty with at least twenty (20) years of service who have received notice that their position is being eliminated, the following options will be provided.
Probationary. An employee who, during the probationary period, is demoted to a class formerly occupied in good standing during the current period of continuous employment shall have their salary reduced to the salary (including merit increases) they would have received if they had remained in the lower class.
Probationary. Layoffs shall be by job class according to reverse order of seniority as determined by total continuous County civil service, except as specified above. The following provisions shall apply in computing total continuous service:
Probationary. New employees hired into the unit from outside the bargaining unit shall be probationary for the first sixty (60) working days of their employment. If thirty (30) or more of the sixty (60) working days occur within the months of July and August, the probationary period shall be extended an additional thirty (30) days (this exception does not apply to year-round employees, i.e. skilled trades, etc.) The district shall provide the employee with the tentative date when their probationary period of sixty (60) working days will end at the time of his/her hire/employment. The parties may, by mutual consent, extend the probationary period up to an additional thirty (30) working days. Upon completion of the probationary period, the employee shall attain seniority status and his/her name shall be entered on the seniority list with a seniority date from the first day worked. Fringe benefit coverage will commence on the first day of the month following the employee’s first day of employment. The employee shall be given an insurance packet at the time of hire along with a TESPA contract.
