May a permanent WMS employee accept an acting WMS appointment and what are the employee's return rights at the conclusion of the acting appointment?

Permanent WMS employees may accept acting appointments to WMS positions.
(1) When a permanent WMS employee has accepted an acting appointment within the same agency and the acting appointment ends the following applies:
(a) The agency may agree to return the employee to a permanent WMS position. If returning to a permanent WMS position, the employee's salary must not be less than the salary of the previously held permanent WMS position.
(b) The agency at a minimum provide the employee the layoff rights of the employee's permanent WMS position in accordance with WAC 357-58-465.
(2) When a permanent WMS employee has accepted an acting appointment within a different agency, the original agency must provide layoff rights as specified in subsection (1) of this section for six months from the time the employee is appointed. Any return right after six months is negotiable between the employee and agency and must be agreed to prior to the employee accepting the nonpermanent appointment. If the employee does not return on the agreed upon date, the employee can request placement in the general government transition pool per WAC 357-46-095.
(3) In lieu of the rights provided in subsections (1) and (2) of this section, the agency and the employee may agree to other terms.
