Explanation:This new rule defines the “Flexible Qualifications” which the Director is authorized to establish under proposed new Rule 22.5(b). It replaces the term “Preferred Qualifications” used in some existing job specifications but is basically the same concept. Experience has shown that the term “Preferred” is somewhat confusing to users and we feel that “Flexible” more appropriately describes how these qualifications are to be used.

1.20.05'Minimum Qualifications' are minimum requirements established by the Director and included on the job specification necessary for appointment to a classified job unless specifically waived elsewhere in these rules.

Explanation:This new rule defines "Minimum Qualifications" which the Director is authorized to establish under proposed new Rule 22.7(a).

1.25.01'Position Change' for the purposes of types of appointment means the movement of a classified employee from one position number to another position number with the same job title.

Explanation:This action occurs now but is not covered by any current definitions, so a new definition is needed.

1.38.3'Selective Certification' means a special job-related qualification standard that is approved by the Director for a specific position number and consists of a narrowing of or addition to the established Minimum Qualifications but in no way reduces the Minimum Qualifications, i.e., an applicant must meet both the Minimum Qualifications and the Selective Certification to be appointed.

Explanation:The selective certification concept has long been used by the Department to cover situations where the needs of a specific position warrant filtering the qualified applicant pool to find applicants with more position-specific qualifications. This rule defines the term as it will be used under the new LACareers online application system.

1.39.101'Special Provisional Appointment' means a temporary appointment under the provisions of Rule 24.2 to allow employees subject to acquisition up to two years to complete the processes required for probationary appointment. Employees appointed under this provision earn leave according to Chapter 11 of these rules.

Explanation:This definition is being added to reflect the terminology used in the new Chapter 24.

Amend the following definitions

Current Rule 1.10'Continuous State Service' means continuous employment in a classified position. Such service includes any authorized leave of absence; a separation by layoff of not more than one year when reemployment is from a department preferred reemployment list; separation without a break in service of one or more working days; or separation for active military service in the armed forces of the United States where reemployment is in accordance with the provisions of Civil Service Rule 8.19.

Proposed Amended Rule:

1.10'Continuous State Service' means continuous employment in a classified position. Such service includes any authorized leave of absence; a separation by layoff of not more than one year when reemployment is from a department preferred reemployment list; separation without a break in service of one or more working days; or separation for active military service in the armed forces of the United States where reemployment is in accordance with
the provisions of Civil Service Rule 23.15.

Explanation:This amendment simply reflects a Rule number change (8.19 to 23.15.)

Current Rule 1.22:'Original Appointment' means initial appointment of a person to a classified position by provisional, probationary, or job appointment.

Proposed Amended Rule:

1.22:'Original Appointment' means appointment of a person to a classified position by probationary or job appointment.

Explanation:We propose that the word “initial” be removed because we want the term “original appointment” as used in proposed new Rule 22.7(a) on veterans’ preference points to include all probationary and job appointments, not just the initial one. This will bring the definition in line with current practice regarding veterans’ preference points. We also propose eliminating the word “provisional” because the existing provisional appointment type will be discontinued with the enactment of new Chapters 22, 23 and 24.

Current Rule 1.25.1'Preference Employee' means an employee who is an ex-member of the armed forces and his or her dependents as defined in Rule 7.11.

Proposed Amended Rule:

1.25.1'Preference Employee' is an employee who on the effective date of his/her transfer pursuant to Rule 24.1 would be entitled to veteran’s preference in accordance with Rule 22.7 as if he/she was applying for original appointment on that effective date.

Explanation:The references in this definition are being amended to reflect the new Rules.

Current Rule 1.39.2'State Service' for the purposes of layoff and layoff avoidance measures, means the total length of Classified State Service in the equivalent full-time years, months and days as an employee of a state agency or agencies subject to the following:

(a)

(b)

6.Unclassified State Service acquired by an unclassified employee relative to his being brought into the Classified Service under Rule 8.27.

Proposed Amended Rule:

1.39.2'State Service' for the purposes of layoff and layoff avoidance measures, means the total length of Classified State Service in the equivalent full-time years, months and days as an employee of a state agency or agencies subject to the following:

(a)

(b)

6.Unclassified State Service acquired by an unclassified employee relative to his being brought into the Classified Service under Rule 24.2.

Explanation:This amendment simply reflects a Rule number change (8.27 to 24.2.)

Repeal the following definitions

1.5.2.1'Certifiable Scores' means a range of scores on a selection procedure which would likely be in the top five grade groups on a certificate of eligibles if one were issued. (REPEAL)
