4.28 Good Standing
The Board of Trustees understands that a high performing workforce is key to achieving the goals of the College and wishes to employ practices which reinforce and reward high performance and professional standards of conduct.
For this purpose, the Board of Trustees sets parameters in three categories where Good Standing guidelines will be applied.
4.28.1 Posting for Open Positions
It is the policy of the College to ensure the most qualified hire for open positions. In addition to any other eligibility requirements, a Classified or Administrative employee must be in Good Standing in order to apply for any open position with the College. Good standing is defined as not being in any stage of the Corrective Action Process.
In certain limited circumstances, a Classified or Administrative employee who has occupied a prior position at the College without performance issues may be allowed to post for open positions even while in the Corrective Action Process. Upon employee request, the matter will be reviewed by the Executive Director, Human Resources in conjunction with the area Vice President and Supervisor where the employee is currently employed and the area Vice President and Supervisor where the open position exists.
4.28.2 Annual Wages Increases and Pay Increments
It is the policy of the College to award pay increments per annual wage increase or pay increment policies (as outlined in the Classified Employees Handbook, Article 3.5 and 3.6 and the Administrative Employees Handbook, Articles 5 and 8) to eligible classified and administrative employees in Good Standing. Good standing is defined as not being in any stage of the Corrective Action Process.
Classified and Administrative employees must be in Good Standing in order to be eligible for an annual wage increase or other pay increments (Classified Handbook, Article 3.5 and 3.6, Administrative Employees Handbook, Articles 5 and 8). Good standing is defined as not being in any stage of the Corrective Action Process.
4.28.3 Eligibility for Re-Hire
All former employees of Bucks County Community College will be eligible for rehire if they left the College in Good Standing and/or were not terminated for reasons categorized as misconduct.
An employee who was terminated involuntarily for unsatisfactory performance may apply for open positions. The former employee’s documented performance deficiencies will be considered for the nature of the deficiencies as they relate to requirements of the position for which the person is applying.
Additionally, employees who resign their positions with the College must abide by notice policies and have returned all College-owned equipment or property in good condition in order to be considered to have left the employ of the College in Good Standing.
