The Civil Service Rules provide former regular employees who were either laid off or resigned in good standing, within five years after the separation date, or current regular employees, the opportunity to be placed on a “Freename” list to be considered for reappointment in a class the individual formerly occupied, or in a lower level class in the same series. Employees must meet the criteria of freename eligibility in accordance with Civil Service Rules.
Additionally, regular employees who have received official layoff notice may request to be considered for appointment to closely related* classes that have the same or lower salary range from the date they receive their layoff notice for as long as 90 days beyond their layoff effective date, and a regular employee who has voluntarily demoted within two years from the demotion may request reappointment to the class from which he/she demoted.
Eligible employees may submit applications at any time with or without a current vacancy, job announcement, or solicitation.
