§ 258. Time Periods for Replies to Employment Inquiries Following Certification.
It shall be the duty of every eligible candidate to respond within a reasonable time to an inquiry to ascertain his or her interest in appointment to a position. An eligible candidate does not need to respond when he or she is not interested in the position.
(a) The Department or appointing power shall provide an eligible candidate the following minimum time periods by which to respond to an employment inquiry:
(1) Telephone: A minimum of two business days after the initial contact, including a voicemail message;
(2) Mail: A minimum of six business days after the date the written notice is sent;
(3) Electronic Communication: A minimum of six business days after the date the electronic notice is sent.
(b) For purposes of this section, the term “electronic communication” means any communication that is transferred electronically to the eligible candidate, including, by way of electronic mail or e-mail, an online account, or similar methods that use computers or the internet for transmission and that the eligible candidate has agreed to use. “Electronic communication” does not include verbal communication.
(c) Where an employment inquiry for a job opening is sent to an eligible candidate and the date by which to respond to the inquiry is prior to the final filing date for the job posting, the Department or appointing power shall not act upon the candidate's failure to reply to the employment inquiry if the candidate files his or her application by the final filing date, thereby verifying his or her interest in the position.
If the eligible candidate is unavailable for employment within 30 calendar days following the date of the job offer, the appointing power may consider this a waiver of appointment.
