*Emergency Appointment – Prior to accepting an emergency appointment, you should be aware that this is not a “regular civil service appointment.” It may not exceed one year and must be terminated immediately when a regular appointment can be made from an eligible list. If you wish to compete for a regular appointment, you must submit an application for the next civil service examination for this position. If you are a current City employee (received a regular appointment) and you accept an emergency appointment, you will automatically be on “protective” leave from your current classification. If you are not currently a regular City of Los Angeles employee when you accept the emergency appointment and you cannot be appointed from an eligible list at the time your emergency appointment ends (one year or establishment of an eligible list, whichever comes first), you will be terminated from City employment.
