Governor Cuomo signed a bill to allow provisional City workers a one time opportunity to take a “Qualified Incumbents Exam” and become permanent in their title. This exam would be given as long as there were no upcoming open competitive examination for that title.
This bill seeks to reduce the number of provisionals working in the City. This bill is an amendment of the 2008 law which also sought to reduce the number of New York City provisional workers.
Provisional appointments are aimed at filling jobs over the short term but it was revealed that some NYS cities had provisionals serving in their title for 19 years.
