Other Probationary Periods

In some situations, a probationary period may be necessary at other times during employment where performance or employee conduct do not meet the expectations of the work group or department.  In situations where a “cautionary” probation period is identified, improvement is required if employment is to be continued. Such instances are documented in writing and explained to the employee by the employee’s supervisor at the time the probationary status is communicated.

Due to the sensitive nature of employment as a Public Safety Officer and the extensive and complex duties performed, a probationary period of 180 days is standard for this category of employees. The probationary period may be extended for up to 90 days at the discretion of the Public Safety Director in consultation with the Vice President of Labor and Student Life and the Director of Human Resources.
