A copy of the evaluation shall be given to the employee at a reasonable time before the completion of the employee's probation. An employee shall gain permanent status unless terminated by the appointing authority prior to the completion of his or her probationary period.

(4) A person reinstated in an employing unit other than one in which the person previously served in permanent status in the class in which the person is being reinstated, or an employee who transfers from one employing unit to another or an employee who moves to a different employing unit in conjunction with a voluntary demotion, may be required by the appointing authority to serve a probationary period. Provisions for the duration of such probationary period shall be provided in the rules of the administrator.

230.28(5)

(5) An employee whose position is classified as "trainee" shall be on a probationary period for the duration of the training program and may be separated during that period without the right of appeal, at the discretion of the appointing authority.

The discharge of a probationary employee is not appealable as part of the "hiring process" under s. 230.44 (1) (d). Board of Regents v. Wisconsin Personnel Commission, 103 Wis. 2d 545, 309 N.W.2d 366 (1981).

230.28 - ANNOT.

An employee who has acquired permanent status in class who is promoted within the same agency, does not lose permanent status in the prior position while in probationary status in the new position. If termination from the new position occurs, the employee must be reinstated in the former position. The required due process to be afforded in a disciplinary action to an employee with a protected property interest in a position is discussed. Arneson v. Jezwinski, 225 Wis. 2d 371, 592 N.W.2d 606 (1999), 95-1592.

230.28 - ANNOT.

An employee serving a promotional probationary period can be removed from that position without the right to appeal. Statutory rights extended to an employee with permanent status protect the employee by requiring that the employee be returned to the pre-promotion position, rather than completely terminated from state service. Any discipline affecting permanent status in class in the pre-promotion position can be maintained only for just cause. Kriska v. WERC, 2008 WI App 13, 307 Wis. 2d 312, 745 N.W.2d 688, 07-0813.
