Reemployment lists show employees who've been laid off or demoted in lieu of layoff. Hiring departments must hire from reemployments lists before using any other list.
The State Personnel Board puts employees on reemployment lists in seniority order. Employees' names go on the list for their class and every class they demoted through. An employee can appear on up to three reemployment lists for each class.
Employees' names stay on reemployment lists until they're re-hired, to a maximum five years.
Departmental Reemployment List
Only the layoff department uses this list. The department must hire the first name on the list when it hires for that class.
Subdivision Reemployment List
Only the layoff department uses this list, and only If the layoff only occurred in a particular location. The department must hire the first name on the list when it hires for that class.
General Reemployment List
All hiring departments use this list. The department must hire one of the top three names on the list. If there are less than three names, the department can add names from the next list. That could be SROA or a promotional list, for example.
