Employee Layoff Information - FAQs (PDF)
This page outlines some of the basic provisions of the Civil Service Commission Rules governing layoffs, and summarizes some of the services and benefits which are available to employees who are separated from employment due to a reduction in force. Please read it carefully.
Not every policy, rule or procedure related to layoffs is included on this page. For
more specific information regarding your rights and benefits, refer to Civil Service Commission Rules and to your collective bargaining agreement.
Much of the information contained on this page applies to employees who are separated from Permanent Civil Service and Provisional appointments. If you are separated from a different appointment type (i.e., Temporary Civil Service), some of your holdover and return-to-duty rights may be different. Exempt employees do not have any holdover or return-to-duty employment rights.
If you have questions, your supervisor or department’s Layoff Coordinator can either answer your questions or get the answers for you. Please bookmark this page or you may save / print out a copy for your future reference.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This page is for informational purposes only. If there is any inconsistency between this page and the Civil Service Rules, collective bargaining agreements, or other local laws, the latter shall govern.
