New broadbanded employees are in a probationary status for the first six months of University service, which may be extended at the discretion of the department. During such period, the employee may be terminated with one week's notice with no right to appeal. One week's pay may be given in lieu of notice.
The supervisor may make a written request to extend the original probationary period for a specific period of time, not to exceed 6 months. This request should be submitted to the Director of Human Resources and Payroll along with a completed responsibility review for this employee.
