Essentially a continuous service means creditable service without a single break of more than 30 calendar days; excluding breaks or other activities specifically defined in 5 CFR 315.201 (b) (3). The agency may, with the assistance of these authorities, appoint a person qualified for any position for which the person meets the qualification standards and other requirements for competitive appointment, unless the person is required to participate in a competitive examination. Similarly, the person is not obliged to compete with professional and professional workers in internal working procedures, unless required by an agency`s policy. The Agency must verify the applicant`s eligibility. To determine whether an agent should serve a conditional sentence, see 5 CFR Part 315, Sub-Part H.

If you have had a career or professional vocation in the past, you may be eligible for reinstatement. A person must be appointed to the competition department without interruption of a working day service, except that a person may be appointed within one year after an involuntary separation from the other compensation system. Qualification standards (including internal mediation provisions, subject to 5 CFR Part 335) and requirements, the appointment of documents and provisions applicable to these officers are the same as for the transfer of workers as part of the competitive service.
A person who has previously met this requirement, who has returned to a date without time limit, is considered to be met, regardless of the length of service on the current date.
