WAC 357-28-135

How is an employee's salary determined when the employee is appointed to a position due to a layoff action?

The base salary of an employee appointed to a position due to a layoff action must be determined as follows:
(1) An employee who accepts a layoff option to a different position with the same salary range keeps the same base salary.
(2) An employee who accepts a demotion in lieu of layoff or accepts a layoff option to a position with a lower salary range maximum must be placed within the new range at a salary equal to the employee's previous base salary. If the previous base salary exceeds the new range, the employee's base salary must be set equal to step M of the new salary range. If the employee's previous base salary was at step M of the salary range the employee must be placed at step M of the new salary range.
(3) An employee who is appointed from an internal or statewide layoff list to a position with the same range as the position from which the employee was laid off must be placed within the range at a salary equal to the employee's previous base salary.
(4) An employee who is appointed from an internal or statewide layoff list to a position with a lower range maximum than the position from which the employee was laid off must have the salary determined by the employer's salary determination policy.
