4 Calculating Seniority Seniority hours are manually calculated by Commission Staff for each employee Seniority hours are manually calculated by Commission Staff for each employee Seniority must be calculated for all employees within a classification Seniority must be calculated for all employees within a classification Seniority hours change with each pay period and must be recalculated Seniority hours change with each pay period and must be recalculated Hours worked as a substitute or on an overtime basis do not count toward seniority Hours worked as a substitute or on an overtime basis do not count toward seniority

5 Two ways to calculate seniority – Date of hire (Certificated) Hours worked (Classified) Seniority includes hours worked in current class plus any higher classes Example: an employee worked as a Staff Secretary - Range 19 Intermediate Office Assistant - Range 15 Office Assistant - Range 10 If bumped back to IOA, only the IOA & Staff Secretary hours count toward seniority. The Office Assistant hours are still there but since it is a lower classification, they wouldnt be added. Calculating Seniority

6 Placement in Current Classification 1: Vacancy in class at same Full Time Equivalent (FTE)/Calendar as current position 2: Vacancy in class of greater FTE/Calendar as current position 3: Displace least senior employee in class with equal FTE/Calendar 4: Displace least senior employee in class with larger FTE/Calendar 5: Displace least senior employee in class that is less than, but closest to FTE/Calendar

7 Placement in Former Classification 1: Placement in vacancy at same Full Time Equivalent (FTE)/Calendar as current position 2: Placement in vacancy of greater FTE/Calendar as current position 3: Displace least senior employee in class with equal FTE/Calendar 4: Displace least senior employee in class with larger FTE/Calendar 5: Displace least senior employee in class that is less than, but closest to FTE/Calendar

8 If there is one person assigned to the class at the site where the position is eliminated, that person will be bumped. If there are two or more people assigned to the class at the site where the position is eliminated, the manager will ask for volunteers for transfer: 1.If two or more people volunteer for transfer, the employee with the most District seniority in the class will be transferred. 2.If there are no volunteers for transfer, the employee with the least District seniority in the class at the site will be bumped. Determining Placement of Staff

9 California Education Code requires a minimum 60 calendar day written notice in time of layoff. We verbally notify each employee of the action and inform them of their options if any. Based on their decision, we proceed with written notification. CSEA, the District and appropriate site management are given copies of the letters Notifying Employees & Sites

10 Approved Vacancy Assignment received Check for existing REL Offer vacancy to the most senior employee on REL If declined, offer to next most senior until REL is exhausted If REL is exhausted and position not filled, certify from a regular list including any applicable transfers Reemployment Lists (REL)

11 Reemployment Lists WAIVER OF OFFER OF APPOINTMENT A person on a reemployment list may decline two offers of permanent appointments without affecting their status on the list, provided an acceptable written explanation is submitted for declining the appointments. A third refusal results in removing the candidates name from the list.
