Conditions of Employment

THIS IS A TEMPORARY ASSIGNMENT FOR 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. This assignment may be terminated early or extended based on management's needs. If temporarily promoted, the temporary promotion cannot exceed five (5) years, nor can it be made permanent. If the duration of the assignment 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 exceeds one year (including extensions beyond one year of the initial temporary appointment of one year or less), and the position is in a different Division/Office from the employee's permanent Division/Office, the employee will not be returned to his or her permanent position of record. Instead, the employee will be placed in a 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 the extension of a temporary promotion beyond one (1) year will directly impact the employee's return rights to his or her permanent Division/Office, the employee must concur in advance with any extension of the temporary assignment 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 the 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.
