602 Career Assistance
It is University policy to encourage employee development through promotion and transfer. These opportunities may occur either in the home department or in other departments.
An employee may discuss informally a promotional opportunity or the possibility of a transfer at any time with a Placement and Staff Relations Representative. Such discussions will be treated confidentially if so requested.
The fact that an employee has requested a transfer shall not jeopardize his or her present position in any way. If any employee has reason to believe that he or she has been retaliated against as a result of pursuing a promotion or transfer opportunity, the employee should inform the Associate Vice President for Administration who will have the charge investigated.
Unless there are unusual circumstances, new employees are expected to stay in their initial positions for at least six months before being considered for transfer, the exception being a transfer that involves a promotion.
When moving to a new position in the University, a managerial or professional employee must provide one month's notice to his or her current supervisor. The date of notice is considered to be that day on which the present supervisor is made aware by the employee of the impending transfer. With the consent of the two supervisors and the employee, an earlier transfer date may be arranged.
To allow current Yale employees an opportunity to investigate the possibilities of transfer or promotion, new openings are listed each week on the Employment Opportunities posting. Employment Opportunities postings are on-line with the University main-frame system; they can also be seen at the offices of the Department of Human Resources and at various locations on campus. These locations are periodically listed in the Weekly Bulletin and Calendar.
No offer of employment may be made to any candidate until two weeks after the initial posting date.
