      1. The written appeal shall be submitted by the employee within three working days of the evaluation conference with the supervisor and include a detailed explanation of the employee's position.
    2. The supervisor of record, within five working days of receipt of the appeal, will present the employee with a written decision responding to the points documented by the employee.

      2. If the supervisor denies the employee's request, the written appeal and the supervisor's written decision will be placed in the employee's personnel file. A copy will be provided to the employee. The issue will be considered closed and the return to probationary status or termination upheld unless the employee appeals the decision to the second-level administrator.
