Currently, for some traineeships (e.g., Administrative Traineeships and Correction Officer Trainees), when the end date of the required period of the traineeship falls during a pay period, payment for the advancement is delayed until the beginning of the following pay period. Effective July 26, 2001, trainee advancements and corresponding payments for all types of traineeships will be made effective the end date of the required period of the traineeship.
For example, if a Personnel Administrator Trainee 1 was appointed on June 14, 2000, under the old policy, payment for advancement to Trainee 2 would be effective June 21, 2001. Under the new policy, the advancement and payment would be effective June 13, 2001. If the employee was later fast tracked under the new policy, the advancement and payment would be effective December 12, 2001.
This policy changes the effective date of an employee's advancement and
salary increase (new hiring rate, service payment or performance advance
payment) to coincide with the end of the required period of service. Interim
All other rules regarding the administration of traineeships remain in
