Recommendation #13 To: Superior Court of California, County of Sacramento

To determine whether staff are capable and suitable for positions, the Sacramento FCS should ensure it follows the superior court’s probationary policy for any former employees the court rehires.

1-Year Agency Response

The Sacramento Superior Court revised as of March 2012 the form it uses to evaluate probationary staff. The court’s policy covering probationary employees, dated January 15, 2010, requires the employee’s manager to complete two interim reports and a final report during the employee’s probationary period.
