Frequently Asked Questions

If I am newly hired or promoted to a different job with the City, how long is the probationary period?

All appointments to covered jobs, including promotions and transfers, shall be on a probationary basis for a period of one year from the date of appointment. For those jobs in which the individual is required to meet state minimum standards, the probationary period shall conclude upon fulfillment of the standards or the passage of one year, whichever is later.  A probationary status employee shall not be entitled to the privilege and protection of that afforded regular status employees by the provisions of Ala. Act 2006-233.
