Conditions of Employment

THIS IS A TEMPORARY ASSIGNMENT NOT TO EXCEED 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. If temporarily promoted, the temporary assignment may be ended earlier or extended for and additional six (6) months or up to five (5) years based on management’s needs. It may also be made permanent without further competition. If the temporary assignment is not made permanent and its duration is one year or less, the employee will be returned to a position that is comparable to his or her permanent position (i.e., same series, grade, and duty location) in the same or successor Division/Office. If, however, the temporary assignment is not made permanent, is to a position in a different Division/Office from the employee’s permanent Division/Office, and exceeds one year (including extensions beyond one year of the initial appointment of one year or less), the employee will not be returned to his or her permanent position of record. Instead, the employee will be placed in a permanent 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 an extension of a temporary promotion beyond one (1) year will directly impact the employee’s return rights to his or her permanent Division/Office and duty location, the employee must concur in advance with any extension of the temporary promotion beyond one (1) year.

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. The 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.
