§ 548.153. Mandatory Reinstatement.
(a) The reinstatement rights provided under this section apply only to employees who are terminated from a Career Executive Assignment on or after April 3, 1981, after completing at least ten years of state service, including at least three consecutive years of career executive service under a single appointing power as specified in part (b) of this section, and who request reinstatement pursuant to this section, in writing, within ten days of receiving notice of the termination of their Career Executive Assignment.
(b) The three consecutive years of career executive service specified under part (a) must
(1) have occurred entirely within six years of the effective date of the employee's termination from a career Executive Assignment, and
(2) must terminate on or after January 1, 1981.
For the purposes of meeting this service requirement, exempt service shall not affect otherwise qualifying career executive service.
(c) Reinstatements under this section shall be to the last appointing power under which the employee completed three consecutive years of career executive service, as specified above.
(d) An eligible employee may request reinstatement to any general civil service level that is:
(1) At least two steps lower in salary than the lowest Career Executive Assignment level a which the employee served during his/her qualifying period of career executive service under this section, provided that the requested level is at least two steps lower than the level from which the employee is being terminated; and
(2) Above the level of the employee's former position.
An employee may limit his/her reinstatement request under this section to positions that the employee could reasonably be expected to accept without a change in his/her place of residence.
(e) Upon receipt of such a request, the appointing power shall reinstate the employee to a position at the requested level and, if applicable, location that is:
(1) Vacant; and
(2) In the same occupational area(s) as the Career Executive Assignment(s) that the employee held under the appointing power, provided such employee possesses any license, certificate, or registration required for the class in which the employee is being reinstated and performance in the Career Executive Assignment(s) combined wit the employee's prior employment history would reasonably predict successful performance in the lower level position.
An employee's refusal to accept a position offered pursuant to these provisions shall constitute a waiver of the employee's rights under this section to be reinstated to or to receive reemployment list eligibility for other positions at the same level, but shall not otherwise impact the rights and eligibilities provided by this article.
(f) If the appointing power does not have a vacant position that can satisfy the employee's reinstatement requested under this section, the following actions shall occur:
(1) If the employee's reinstatement request is not limited to his/her current location, the employee's name shall be placed on the appointing power's departmental and local subdivisional reemployment list for any classes containing positions which, if vacant, would satisfy the employee's reinstatement request pursuant to this section. If the employee's reinstatement request is limited to his/her current location, the employee's name shall be placed on a subdivisional reemployment list covering that location for the classes indicated above. Departmental or subdivisional reemployment list eligibility granted under this section shall not result in the employee's name being placed on any general reemployment list. Subdivisional eligibilities may be changed with the concurrence of the employee and the appointing power.
(2) The reinstatement and reemployment provision outlined in parts (e) and (f)(1) of this section shall be applied in descending order to any lower general civil service levels under the appointing power that contain positions which meet the criteria outlined in parts (d) and (e)(2) of this section.
(g) If an employee cannot be placed in a vacant position pursuant to this section, the employee shall be reinstated to his or her former position.
