Additional Comments:

*For the duration of the NY HELPS Program, this title maybe filled via a non- competitive 

appointment, which means no examination is required but all candidates must meet the minimum 

qualifications of the title for which they apply. At this time, agencies may recruit and hire 

employees by making temporary appointments. In May 2024, if a temporary NY HELPS employee is 

satisfactorily performing in the position, the appointment will be changed from temporary pending 

Civil Service Commission Action to permanent non-competitive and the official probationary period will begin.

At a future date (within one year of permanent appointment), it is expected employees hired under 

NY HELPS will have their non-competitive employment status converted to competitive

status, without having to compete in an examination. Employees will then be afforded with all of 

the same rights and privileges of competitive class employees of New York State. While serving 

permanently in a NY HELPS title, employees may take part in any promotion examination for which 

they are qualified.


Background Investigation Requirements:

1) All prospective employees will be investigated through a Criminal Background Check (CBC), which 

includes State and federal Criminal History Record Checks. All convictions must be reported; 

conviction of a felony or misdemeanor, or any falsified or omitted information on the prospective 

appointee’s employment application, may bar appointment or result in removal after appointment. 

Each case will be determined on its own merits, consistent with the applicable provisions of State 

and federal laws, rules, and regulations. Prospective employees will be fingerprinted in order to 

obtain a record of their criminal history information, and may be required to pay any necessary 

fees.


2) All prospective employees will be screened against the Statewide Central Register of Child Abuse 

and Maltreatment (SCR). Prospective employees will be required to pay any necessary fees.

3) For Division of Juvenile Justice and Opportunities for Youth (DJJOY) prospective appointees will
