1983, c. 55, s. 52.
53. A deputy minister or a chief executive officer may appoint a person as soon as the person has been declared qualified and is registered in a bank of qualified persons.
Before making a choice, the deputy minister or the chief executive officer may conduct an additional evaluation based on the nature and particularities of the position to be filled.
Despite the first paragraph, the Conseil du trésor may, by regulation, determine cases and circumstances in which the deputy minister or the chief executive officer cannot make an appointment before all candidates have completed the qualification process.
If there is among the qualified persons one to whom an affirmative action program or a program designed to ensure the hiring of handicapped persons applies, the deputy minister or the chief executive officer must take the objectives of the program into consideration when making the appointment. The hiring objectives determined by the Conseil du trésor as regards the various components of Québec society must also be taken into consideration.
The application of this section cannot be the subject of an appeal under section 35.
1983, c. 55, s. 53; 1999, c. 58, s. 3; 2013, c. 25, s. 15.
53.0.1. Within the same invitation for applications, a public servant may be appointed before the expiry of the time for appeal provided in section 35 and even if an appeal brought under that section is pending before the Commission de la fonction publique.
However, the appointment is conditional for as long as the last time for appeal that applies to candidates within the same invitation for applications has not expired and, as the case may be, for as long as any appeal brought by one of the candidates has not been settled. If warranted, the appointment must be re-evaluated by the deputy minister or the chief executive officer on the basis of the decision made by the Commission; where applicable, the appointment shall cease to have effect and the public servant shall be reinstated in the position held before the appointment.
The position held by the public servant before the conditional appointment may not be filled on a permanent basis by the deputy minister or chief executive officer concerned until the conditional appointment of the public servant becomes definitive.

1999, c. 58, s. 4.
53.2. Despite any provision to the contrary, a retired public service employee may, without having to undergo the qualification process, be re-appointed under this Act to a position in the same class as the class he belonged to before retiring or to any other position with less stringent conditions of eligibility for which a deputy minister or a chief executive officer has recognized him as having the necessary skills. Such a re-appointment is only possible to meet a temporary need and where the person’s particular expertise and experience are required. The Conseil du trésor prescribes the terms and conditions of such a re-appointment, which may only be for a fixed term.
2013, c. 25, s. 17.
54. When a public servant comes into office or changes class of positions or grade, the deputy minister or the chief executive officer shall assign a classification to him in accordance with the regulation under subparagraph 11 of the first paragraph of section 50.1.
When placing a public servant in a new or changed class of positions, the deputy minister or the chief executive officer shall assign a classification to him in accordance with the conditions and modalities fixed by the Conseil du trésor under paragraph 1 of section 34 of the Public Administration Act (chapter A-6.01).

Certification under this section is granted only upon the recommendation of a joint committee constituted for such purpose by the Government, one-half of the members of which are representatives of the group concerned.
Certification under this section has the same effect as certification granted by the Administrative Labour Tribunal.

The Conseil du trésor shall transmit, without delay, a copy of any agreement made under the second paragraph to the Administrative Labour Tribunal.
