Emergency Appointment:
When a civil service eligible list does not exist for a class, a Department can fill the vacancy by “Emergency Appointment.” A candidate selected for emergency appointment will not gain civil service status rights to the class or position. An emergency appointment is not a regular appointment. It is a temporary appointment, which does not require that you successfully compete in the Civil Service examination process. Emergency appointments are subject to the approval of the Personnel Department. The length of an emergency appointment is a maximum of one year, or until the establishment of an eligible list, whichever comes first, and shall be terminated immediately when a regular appointment can be made (City Charter Section 1013). Once the civil service announcement is made, all employees interested in the position, including the individual selected for the emergency appointment, must compete for the position. An emergency appointment does not guarantee selection to fill a permanent/regular position.
