19-4323.Same; when positions filled without competition. Positions covered by this act may be filled without competition only as follows:

(a) Whenever there are urgent reasons for filling a vacancy in any position in the classified service and the civil service board is unable to certify from any appropriate eligible list for the vacancy, the civil service board may issue a provisional permit or certify a suitable person to fill such vacancy provisionally only until a selection and appointment can be made after competitive examination; but no person shall receive more than one provisional appointment nor serve more than three (3) months in any calendar year as a provisional appointee.

(b) In case of an emergency, an appointment may be made without regard to the provisions of the act, but in no case shall continue longer than thirty (30) days, and in no case shall successive emergency appointments be made. This provision shall apply to both persons and positions. No person shall receive more than three (3) emergency appointments in any one or different positions within one year.

(c) In case of a vacancy in a position where peculiar and exceptional qualifications of a scientific, professional or expert character are required, and upon satisfactory evidence that for specified reasons competition in such special case is impracticable and that the position can best be filled by the selection of some designated person of high and recognized attainments in such qualities, the civil service board may suspend the requirements of competition in such case, but no suspension shall be general in its application to such position, and all such cases of suspension shall be reported in the annual report of the board with the reasons for the same.

(d) Where the services to be rendered by an appointee are for a temporary period not to exceed three (3) months and a proper list of eligibles is not available, the civil service board shall certify for such temporary service any person it deems qualified. The acceptance or refusal by an eligible of a temporary appointment shall not affect his standing on the register for permanent employment, nor shall the period of temporary service be counted as part of the probationary period in case of subsequent appointment to a permanent position. Successive temporary appointments to the same position shall not be made under this provision.
