Hour Program allows agencies to offer temporary limited appointments to persons
In order to assist persons with disabilities certified by the Rehabilitation Division of the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation, appointing authorities are encouraged and authorized to make temporary limited appointments of certified persons with disabilities for a period not to exceed 700 hours notwithstanding that the positions so filled are continuing positions. A person with a disability who is certified by the Rehabilitation Division must be placed on the appropriate list for which the person is eligible. Each such person must possess the training and experience necessary for the position for which the person is certified.
When an individual's name is placed on the eligible list as a 700 hour candidate, agencies must interview and hire him or her on a temporary limited appointment of 700 hours if the individual can perform the essential functions of the position. Temporary appointments may not occur if the individual is receiving benefits from the agency where the vacancy occurs and/or if there is an actual conflict of interest between in the individual and the hiring agency. At the end of this appointment, if the applicant's performance is satisfactory, he or she may continue in the position as a regular probationary employee with 700 hours counting towards their probationary period.
