Limited to Career

I. Summary

A limited position is an appointment established at any percentage of time, fixed or variable, during which the appointee is expected to be on pay status for less than 1,000 hours in a 12-month period.

A limited appointment will be designated as career when the appointee has attained 1,000 hours in a 12 month period and will be effective the first of the month following attainment of 1,000 hours of qualifying service.

Limited positions that have been appointed through the Limited Non Recruitment process should be monitored by the Manager/Supervisor to ensure they do not convert to attain 1,000 hours and convert to career status.
