Employee Handbook 2021-2022


12.1 Seniority

Probationary employees shall not acquire or accumulate seniority while on probation, but upon completion of the probationary period shall have their anniversary date established as the original date of last hire and shall be given credit for all time followed by continuous service, except that any time spent on layoff without pay in excess of thirty (30) days (except military service) shall not be counted as part of total service. In the event that a seniority-based employment decision involves two (2) or more employees with the same seniority, the tie shall be broken by lot. It is understood that the result of the broken tie shall be applicable to that employment decision; future such seniority-based employment decisions shall require a separate tie break.
