previous next Effective - 28 Aug 1996, 2 histories, see footnote (history)bottom

  36.240.  Appointing authorities, procedure to fill vacancies — laid-off or demoted personnel given preference, when. — 1.  Whenever an appointing authority proposes to fill one or more vacancies in a class of positions subject to this chapter, the appointing authority shall submit to the director, as far in advance of the desired appointment date as possible, a requisition for the certification of eligible persons from an appropriate register.  The requisition shall contain information as required by the director.  The appointing authority, subject to conditions specified in the regulations, may also designate special requirements of domicile or the possession of special skills.  If the director finds that such requirements would contribute substantially to effective performance of the duties involved, certification may be limited to persons on the register who meet such requirements.

  2.  When vacancies to be filled are in a class from which employees have been laid off, or demoted in lieu of layoff, certification shall be limited to previous employees until all employees of a division of service on the appropriate reinstatement register have been reinstated in order of rank on the register.  Thereafter, certification from reinstatement and other registers shall be in accordance with the provisions of this section and the regulations of the board.

  3.  Upon a request for certification, the director shall certify for selection the names of the top fifteen ranking available eligibles or the names of available eligibles comprising the top ranking fifteen percent of available eligibles, whichever is greater, plus such additional eligibles as have a final rating equal to that of the last certified eligible.  Upon request of the appointing authority, the director may also certify, for each additional vacancy to be filled from the same certification, the next five ranking available eligibles plus such additional eligibles as have a final rating equal to that of the last certified eligible.

  4.  If the director finds that the nature of the examination process and the type of positions involved justify alternative procedures for filling vacancies, the board may by rule prescribe such procedures which may include certification by broad category of examination rating or within a specified range of scores.

  5.  When a position in divisions of the service subject to this chapter is limited in duration, certification may be limited to the highest ranking eligible who will accept employment under such conditions.  A person appointed to a position under such conditions shall retain his or her relative position on the register and shall be eligible for certification to a permanent position in the regular order until the register itself has expired.  If a temporary position is limited to less than ninety calendar days' duration, the appointing authority may fill the position by temporary appointment in the manner provided in section 36.270.

  6.  The rules shall prescribe the conditions under which the name of an eligible who has been certified to and considered for appointment by an appointing authority but has not been appointed may be withheld from further certification to such appointing authority.  The eligible shall be entitled to retain his or her place on the eligible register during the life of the register, and shall be certified in the order of his or her rank to other vacancies in the class under other appointing authorities.

  7.  Eligibles who are not available for appointment when offered certification shall be granted a waiver of certification upon their request.  Eligibles who do not respond within a reasonable period to a notice of certification may at the discretion of the director be dropped from the eligible register.

  8.  Any person who has obtained regular status in a class of positions subject to subsection 1 of section 36.030 and who has resigned from state service in good standing or who has accepted demotion or transfer for personal reasons may be reemployed without competitive certification in the same or comparable class at the discretion of the appointing authority and under conditions specified in the regulations.  Any person who has successfully served at least one year in a position not subject to subsection 1 of section 36.030, but which is subject to section 36.031, and who has resigned from state service in good standing or who has accepted demotion or transfer for personal reasons, may be reemployed without competitive certification in the same or comparable class at the discretion of the appointing authority and under conditions specified in the regulations, provided he or she possesses the qualifications and has successfully completed a noncompetitive examination for the class involved.  No one shall be reemployed pursuant to this section until reinstatement has first been offered to all eligibles on the reinstatement register for the class and division of service involved.

  9.  Preference in certification and appointment from promotional registers or registers of eligibles under conditions specified in the regulations, may be given to employees of the division of service in which the vacancy occurs.
