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.
