To Amend Chapter 40 of the City Code Regarding Restrictions on Selecting, Reclassifying, or Otherwise Placing Members of the Appointed Service in Vacant Positions in the Classified Service During a Lame-Duck Period

This Ordinance is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. If approved, Chapter 40 of the City Code would be amended to define and then add a “lame-duck period” of time during which no appointed City employee may be selected, reclassified or otherwise placed into a vacant position in the classified service, unless there is an emergency certified by the Director of Human Resources and approved by the Administrative Board. Any appointee who applies for a position in the classified service could be considered for the position, as would any other applicant, but only after the conclusion of the lame-duck period. If no appointee applies for a vacant position, then the selection process for that position may proceed during the lame-duck period. The legislation is intended to keep the employee selection process free of political influence or advantage assuring that the most qualified applicant is selected for a position of employment with the City of Wilmington.
