Appraisal Unit
  1. Alternate Work Schedules for Property Appraisal: Within optional work plans established by the Assessor, the Assessor is willing to schedule workers’ 40-hour, 4-day, 5-day or 6-day workweeks at hours other than from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for property appraisal assignments if this will result in the more thorough or efficient completion of assigned work during daylight hours, provided the workers work at least 6 hours per day. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Assessor may, if necessary to successfully complete assigned work, approve a six (6)-day work schedule in which the worker works not less than four (4) hours on any of the five (5) weekdays and the appropriate amount of hours on the succeeding Saturday. This provision shall not be interpreted to compel workers in the Appraisal Unit to work evenings or Saturdays without overtime compensation as provided in Section 7 (Overtime) of this MOU.
  2. Advance Payments for Auditor-Appraisers. For out of town assignments for a period greater than one week, Auditor-Appraisers will be allowed up to two thousand dollars ($2,000.00) as an advance on expenses.

  • Has three (3) years of experience with the San Mateo County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder’s Office in the classification of Appraiser/Auditor-Appraiser or higher, or has held a permanent Board of Equalization Appraiser’s Certificate for at least three (3) years; and
