Universal Citation: WI Admin Code ยง ER 44.09

Current through February 26, 2024

(1) USE OF TRAINEES. The administrator may authorize the use of trainees, except for career executives, when the special funding requirements of a position require that the position be filled by a trainee, or when the administrator determines that a sufficient number of qualified promotional candidates for the objective level, including women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities, are not available within the agency or employing unit; and:

(a) Filling the position as a trainee will be more appropriate than appointment at the objective level because ability to satisfactorily perform the job tasks is normally acquired as a result of a structured program of job related training and on-the-job experience is required; or

(b) Qualified candidates at the objective level are not readily available in the labor market; or

(c) Filling the position as a trainee will increase the agency's ability to comply with an approved affirmative action plan or program.

(2) APPOINTMENT TRANSACTION. The type of appointment transaction shall be based on the objective classification level for the position when filling a position with a trainee.

See s. ER-MRS 13.03 for an explanation of the requirements of the probationary period for trainees and understudies.
