AGLO 1973 NO. 84 >

The state personnel board may by regulation require permanent employees in the classified service (i.e., employees who have successfully completed an initial six-months probationary period) to serve another six-month probationary period in any higher class of covered employment to which they are later promoted in order to obtain permanent status in that class as distinguished from their previously acquired permanent status in the civil service system per se.
