German term or phrase: Stufenaufstieg
'bei Erkrankung von über 39 Wochen am Stück (unabhäng. vom Krankheitsgrund): PersSb z.Ktn. = Prüfg. Stufenaufstieg'

The original text is from German employment documentation in the public sector.

Aufstieg can mean promotion, among other things, but I really don't think that would be correct in this context.
