Classified Employee Handbook

Promotion/Demotion and Transfers

Promotion

If you are promoted to a classification which is one grade higher than your former classification, your maximum rate of pay shall increase six percent (6%). If you are promoted to a classification which is two or more grades higher than your former classification, your rate of pay shall increase eight percent (8%). If the new rate of pay falls below Pay Level I for the new grade, your rate of pay shall be adjusted to Pay Level I. However, the rate of pay may not exceed Pay Level IV of the new pay grade.

You must meet or exceed the minimum qualifications for the new position to be promoted to that position.

Demotion

When an employee is involuntarily demoted or voluntarily solicits a demotion, his or her rate of pay shall be fixed in the lower-graded position at a rate equal to six percent (6%) less than the employee’s rate of pay at the time of demotion for demotion of one (1) grade and a maximum of eight percent (8%) less than the employee’s rate of pay at the time of demotion for demotions of two (2) or more grades.

Transfer

Employees transferring from one classified position to another at the same grade are eligible to remain at the same salary. Employees transferring from one classified position to another at a higher or lower grade are considered as being promoted or demoted as applicable. This policy applies to employees transferring between State agencies and/or institutions without a break in service and employees returning to State service within two pay periods after leaving.
