Salient Points for the Seniority List of Employees

Today I am going to explain the main points in connection with the seniority list. While preparing the seniority there are many points that must be kept in mind so that the accuracy may be maintained in the seniority list. There may be some other points in complicated cases but I am mentioning below some salient points in connection with the seniority.

Seniority for the employees who are appointed vide the same letter/notification

If many employees are appointed vide the same letter or notification then there are some times clearly written that the seniority of the newly appointed employees will be according to the serial number. The employee at the serial No. 1 will the senior of all and at the last number will be junior of all provided the employee joins the duty at due date.

If any employee joins later, then he will be junior to those who join their duty earlier.

If employees join on the same date then there is no difference of their seniority but the condition is that there should be clearly written that the seniority will be according to the serial number.

Seniority for the employees who join on the same date

If there is no above mentioned condition of serial number then if two employees join on the same date then the person who is older will be senior to the person who is younger.

Seniority for the employees who are promoted

The promoted employees will be kept at the bottom of the seniority of the employees of who are already in the same scale. If one person is appointed directly and the other is promoted on the same date, then the promotee will be senior.

If one employee is appointed 1st in a certain pay scale and the promotion of other employee occurs after that date then the 1st appointee will be senior to the promotee.

The seniority of all the promoted employees is according to their earlier seniority list in the previous scale. It means their seniority list will be according to the promotion list as the promotion list is prepared according to the seniority.

There will be no difference in seniority if any promotee employee joins later than the other promotee employee. There seniority will always be according to their promotion list.

Seniority of the employees who are re-appointed

The seniority of the re-appointed employee will be according to his/her new appointment. His previous seniority will not be considered. The conditions for his/her seniority will be the same as mentioned for the “seniority for the employees who are appointed vide the same letter/notification” and “seniority for the employees who join on the same date.”

Seniority of the employees who are regularized

The employees who are regularized are kept at the bottom from their date of regularization, of seniority of the employees that are earlier in the same pay scale.

There may be some times other terms and conditions in connection with seniority list.

 

Seniority List

 

In the case of persons appointed otherwise, with reference to the dates of their continuous appointment in the grade; provided that if the date of continuous appointment in the case of two or more persons appointed to the grade is the same, the older if not junior to the younger in the next below grade, shall rank senior to the younger person.

    dear i m interested to seek some guidelines in setting seniority

    i was appointed as Assistant director on 09 january 2008 along with two other officers. these two were placed higher in seniority with the points that they have secured higher marks than me.
    but as per written test i secured higher than both of these. after interview marks their marks exceed my marks.

    my question is can i challege this seniority as in the interview my got favor?

    and second question is that

    were three were appointed on 09 january 2008, and a promoteee from our department got promoted on APril 2008. he has been placed senior with the point that as the appointment and promotion has been occured durring the same financial year so promotee will be seniour. i don't think it is as per rules. i studied estacode but could not find answer.
    please tell me either he is senior to all of us or otherwise

    i am thankful of you regards

    dear shumaila hope u r good
    1. plz tell me about the seniority w.r.t. age difference.old one is senior one, is it true if joining is on same day.
    2. plz share document...in which all info mentioned about promotions and seniority matters.
    3. heard from someone dat govt is going to restructure the salary scales in december 2013..is it true?

    • Dear Wasim Arif, I have already mentioned in this article if there is mention in the orders that the seniority is based on the merit list then the seniority will be according to the merit list and if there is no such condition then the seniority is based on age. The older is senior than the younger.
      Let's see the month of December if there is any implementation.

        • Dear M Sharif Anjum as for I know if the person is transferred on his own will from one district to another district he seniority will be put at the bottom of the existing employees of the other district.

    Tell me plz with reference or order if any issue or court decision who are senior.
    Thanks in Advance

    • Dear Nadeem it is a complicated question.

      • Fayyaz Ahmed says:

        Dear sis, my appointment was along with others listed in one list. My serial no. was 05. It means I am junior to only 4 employees. My No. in merit was also 5th.
        You mentioned due date, what do you mean by due date. Is it the period of time which given to an employ for joining.

        • Dear Fayyaz some times there is written in the appointment letter that these employees join their duties upto some date. It is due date. The Employee who joins first is senior and the one who joins later is junior.

    • Jamal Nasir says:

      what is the date of regularization of assistants appointed on contract basis?

  9. shahid says:

    agar kuch log aik hi din sa regular hua houn too phir on ki seniority list kis tarha bana gee

  10. Ali says:

    For e.g Organization inducted 10 people and it has prepared merit list of these 10 inductees so Can organization prepare seniority list on the basis of marks/merit obtained in test and interview irrespective of these 10 inductees irrespective of date of joining.

  11. Ghulam Rasool says:

  12. Ihsan says:

    The cabinet sub-committee has regularized contractual employees.

    Does any one know, has there been any ruling / decision that how will be the inter se seniority of the same determined? I am asking about grade 17 and above.

    Thanks.

  13. khalid abbasi says:

    A EMPLOYEE (PHARMACY TECH) JOINING DATE IS 2006 AS CONTRACT, HIS DATE OF BIRTH IS 1980.

    ANOTHER EMPLOYEE (PHARMACY TECH) JOINING DATE IS 2007 AS CONTRACT , HIS DATE OF BIRTH IS 1975.

    BOTH EMPLOYEES REGULARIZED ON 14.10.2009.

    WHICH EMPLOYEE WILL BE SENIOR ?

  14. Asim Alvi says:

    Its right. Date of joining is the base of seniority. If somebody have higher qualification then he have to apply for the higher post.
