2,255: Classified Appointments

Revised: April 2014

All appointments must be approved by BCN Human Resources and comply with Affirmative Action and State of Nevada requirements.  A Personnel Action Form (PAF) is used as the appointing document.  

Regular appointments to classified service are hired into regularly budgeted projects of limited duration or continuing positions through formal recruitment processes. Normally, all regular employees will be hired on a probationary basis. Refer to section 2,250 for recruitment processes.

Emergency appointments may be made for a period not to exceed 60 working days when a person is needed without delay to prevent stoppage of university business.

Provisional appointees (those persons appointed when an appropriate eligible list does not exist) are required to qualify successfully on the next examination and be placed on the eligible list in order to be retained in the position.  The provisional appointment must be terminated within 30 days after the establishment of an appropriate eligible list, but no later than six months following the date of the provisional appointment.

Temporary appointments are intended to meet the short-term needs of an employer. There are several types of temporary employment positions. Please refer to the HR website for specific appointment types and instructions for making a temporary employment request. Temporary appointments are not eligible to accrue sick and annual leave.
