Eligible lists shall remain in effect six months and may be extended by the Human Resources director for additional six-month periods, but in no event shall a list remain in effect for more than two years. When hired into a permanent position, your name will be removed from the Eligible List from which you were hired.
The same is true for an Extra Help/Temporary position if the Eligible List was opened specifically to fill an Extra Help/Temporary opening. You will be notified by mail if you are on an Eligible List that has been abolished or expired.
An Eligible List may be certified as a substitute list for positions which perform similar duties but are filled with different classifications. For this purpose, a similar classification is one at a lower level in the same class series or one in which the type and scope of duties performed, as well as the minimum training and experience required are substantially similar. If you are contacted for an interview by a County department, you will be informed of the classification and other relevant information. If you choose not to interview for a similar classification, you will remain on the Eligible List for which you originally applied.
You can request that your name be coded so that it will not be included on certification lists during the time period you designate. Please contact our offices via email to make this request. Be sure to include the starting date that you wish to be excluded from certification and when you would like to be added back to the list.
You may indicate, in writing, that you wish to be removed from further participation in the recruitment and your name will be removed from the eligible list. This may be done via emailing the Human Resources department.
