Provisional appointment

Recommended Posts

Can someone help me with this question?

If you hired as provisional employee do you have the same benefits right as permanent employee? I mean can you take personal or sick days? Will you be covered under health insurance.

 

Also do you still have serve probation period if provisional appoitment became permanent?

 

Thank you

There are a couple differences between a provisional and a permanent appointment. A provisional is essentially on eternal probation as a provisional employee doesn't receive the same Civil Service protections that a permanent employee receives. That also means that a provisional employee does not have seniority rights. Until you gain permanent status, your seniority will remain at zero.

Plus, they can fire you at any moment especially if the company hires someone with permanent status and takes over your position/spot.

Sort of, this happens at other gov't agencies more than (MTA). In civil service, if one section downsizes, they can shift permanent personnel laterally (equivalent pay grade) to another title/dept, and bump provisional appointments back on the jobs list. If there are no jobs/slots available for provisionals, they are laid off..
