(a) Whenever a job opening occurs within the classified
service, the appointing authority shall, in addition to any other
requirement of law or regulation for the posting of job opening
notices, at least ten days before making an appointment to fill the
job opening, post a notice within the building or facility where
the duties of the job will be performed and throughout the agency,
which notice states that a job opening has occurred and describes
the duties to be performed by a person employed in that position.
(b) If an individual selected for a posted vacancy within the
first ten work days of employment: (1) Refuses the offer of
employment; (2) fails to report to work; or (3) resigns or
otherwise separates from employment, the appointing authority is
not required to repost the vacancy prior to another appointment to
the position if the appointment is made within thirty days and the
selection is made from the pool of eligible applicants from which
the first employee was hired.
