May I be terminated during the probationary period?

May I be terminated during the probationary period?

During a covered employee's probationary period, a department head may discharge a probationer under his or her supervision by stating in writing the reasons to the mayor. If the mayor disagrees with the discharge, mayor may, within five (5) days of receipt of the written statement, notify the department head and the probationer of the time and place of a hearing to be conducted in regard to the discharge. Upon failure of the mayor to so notify within five (5) business days, the mayor shall be deemed to have consented to the discharge. In the event that such a hearing is scheduled, the department head may suspend the probationer without pay pending the hearing.
