(50 ILCS 742/30)
Promotion examination components.
Promotion examinations that
include components consisting of written examinations, seniority points,
ascertained merit, or subjective evaluations shall be administered as provided
in Sections 35, 40, 45 and 50. The weight, if any, that is given to any
component included in a test may be set at the discretion of the appointing
authority provided that such weight shall be subject to modification by the
terms of any collective bargaining agreement in effect on the effective date of
this Act or thereafter by negotiations between the employer and an exclusive
bargaining representative. If the appointing authority establishes a minimum
passing score, such score shall be announced prior to the date of the promotion
process and it must be an aggregate of all components of the testing process.
All candidates shall be allowed to participate in all components of the testing
process irrespective of their score on any one component.
The provisions of
this Section do not apply to the extent that they are inconsistent with
provisions otherwise agreed to in a collective bargaining agreement.
