An employee is notified via a letter from the department head or designee, stating he/she is being rejected during his/her probationary period.
- If this is the initial probationary period for an employee, the employee leaves County employment. Typically, the probationary employee is given the option to change the probationary rejection to a resignation within a specified amount of time.
- If this probationary period is being served due to a promotion, demotion or transfer, the employee may be entitled to return to their former classification. If the employee has the right to return to a previous classification they held with the County, the letter will also state the date and position to which they should report. If this is the case, contact Employee & Labor Relations for assistance.
- Whether the employee submits his/her letter of resignation or verbally submits his/her resignation (i.e. phone message), the manager should provide the employee with a letter acknowledging and accepting that resignation.
