Staff Probation Period

A 6-month probation is required for most career employees. During the probationary period the employee will receive two evaluations.

  • The midpoint evaluation is due 3 months after the original hire date and should cover the first 3 months from date of hire.
  • The final evaluation is due 5.5 months after the original hire date and should cover the full 6 month period.
  • Employees cannot use any vacation leave during the 6-month probation. The only exception to this is for the winter curtailment period.
  • Any leave taken during this time will extend the probationary period.

We strive for a successful probationary period. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the progress or training of a new hire, please consult with Library Human Resources immediately.
