Conditions of Employment

Working Hours: Most staff positions work a 9/80 work schedule during regular business hours between 7:30 and 5:00 p.m. Schedules are determined based upon agency needs.

Provisional period: All appointments are provisional subject to the completion of a provisional period of a minimum of six months. The provisional period is a part of the selection process in that it is a trial period for the employee to demonstrate on the job that he/she has the knowledge, skill and ability to successfully perform the duties and responsibilities of the position. If performance is not satisfactory, an employee may be terminated without redress.

California Driver's License: Many staff positions require the possession of a valid California Driver License including a good driving record at the time of hire and during the course of employment. If required, applicants selected for interview will be required to submit an up-to-date Motor Vehicle Record obtained from the local DMV.

Disability Leave and Workers Compensation: The Housing Authority participates in CA State Disability Insurance and independent Workers Compensation Insurance. These programs are administered through the Human Resources Department. Upon hire employees will receive pamphlets describing the responsibilities of the employer and employee.

Medical Examination: A medical examination paid by the Housing Authority is required of each new Maintenance employee and Site Manager. The employee's physical condition must be consistent with the requirements of the job duties to be performed (with or without accommodation). Candidates are cautioned that offers of employment or continued employment are conditional and subject to the satisfactory completion of the medical examination. An examination of any employee may be requested at any time by their supervisor.

Background Investigation: A background investigation including application information verification, criminal history, drug screening and DMV reports (if required) is conducted on any applicant selected for hire. Any offer of employment is subject to the satisfactory completion of this investigation.
