(A) The probationary period shall be regarded as an integral part of the examination process and shall be utilized for closely observing the employee's work, for securing the most effective adjustment of the new employee to his position, and for rejecting any employee whose performance does not meet the required work standards.
(B) All appointments shall be probationary and subject to a probationary period as stated in this code. The department head shall make any periodic reports during an employee's probationary period that the Personnel Director may require and shall notify the Personnel Director at least ten calendar days prior to completion of the probationary period whether the services of the employee have been satisfactory and whether he will continue the employee in his position. The notice shall be on the prescribed form. At any time during the probationary period, the City Manager may remove an employee whose performance does not meet the required work standards, provided he notifies the employee and the Personnel Director of the reasons for the action.
(C) If an employee promoted to a higher position as a result of appointment from a promotional list is found unsuited for the work of the position during the probationary period, he shall be reinstated to his former position. If the employee's former position is not vacant, the person holding the former position shall be returned to his respective former position, and so forth, on a seniority basis.
