Filling Positions: Additional Information



Senior Level Appointments

Management Directive 515.16 provides more information about the appointment of senior level positions.

When you are appointing a new employee to a senior level position, you should use the senior level requests (SLR) application to gain approval from the Office of Administration and the Governor’s Office. The Office of Inspector General will perform a background check as part of this approval process if it is necessary.

Contact Belinda Nester (717.787.8191) to gain access to the SLR application or if you have questions about the process. Contact the HR Service Center, Business Information and Support Division (877.242.6007, Option 4) for technical assistance with the online system.

Annuitants

When hiring an annuitant, use the CAR-A form to submit your request for approval. See the Personnel Rules (MD 505.7), section 7.25 for more information about rehiring annuitants.

Furlough Placement

Furlough placement can be a complicated process. See the Civil Service Act for more information. Contact OA-Human Resources' Bureau of State Employment at 717.787.5703 with questions regarding the furlough hiring process.

Furlough Templates

  • The furlough check template should be used for a generic check for furloughees, non-civil service or civil service.
  • The furlough clearance template should be used to check for furloughees for actions involving current commonwealth employees going into pay scale groups 1-5 and equivalent pay scale groups for Corrections positions. Actions include: promotions, demotions, transfers, reassignments, and changes from wage to salary. (It is not required for reclassifications, furlough recall, or furlough placement. In these instances, insert the appropriate code into SAP when entering the action.) Include the candidate's name in the subject line of the e-mail.
  • The candidate CAR template should be used for the same actions identified under the furlough clearance template involving current commonwealth employees going into pay scale groups 6, 7, and 8 and equivalent pay scale groups for Corrections positions. Include the candidate's name in the subject line of the e-mail.

This information regarding the furlough placement process may be provided to employees.
