Executive Order 1052—Amending Civil Service Rules in Relation to Proposed Employee Transfers
Civil Service Rule X, paragraph 8, clause (e), in relation to an employee proposed for transfer, is hereby amended to read as follows:
He shall not be transferred unless, in the judgment of the Commission, he possesses experience, qualifications, or training, which are required for the proper performance of the duties of the position to which transfer is proposed, and which render necessary in the interests of the service the filling of the position by his transfer, rather than by an original appointment or promotion in the manner provided by the Civil Service Act.
