  5. ISD Classification Assignments and Layoffs

Notification of Classification/Working Title Changes.  On the following pages the identified classifications and corresponding working titles apply to positions in the Information Services Department.  The Department will notify, in writing, any worker being permanently reassigned to a different working title.  This notification will include a copy of the appropriate job specifications.

Layoffs.  In the event of layoffs, ranking for layoff will be by seniority within groups identified below.

Bumping Rights and Re‑Training.  The Department agrees that in situations where, because of layoffs, a worker is bumped back into a position for which s/he once held the classification but may not have experience in the particular kind of expertise required of the new position, the department will re‑train the worker to assume the new duties.

Bumping into Different Shifts.  Should a worker on one shift be laid off, and then bump back into the position of a less senior worker who works a different shift, s/he will be required to take the new shift in order to maintain employment with the County.

Assignment and Layoff Chart – General Information

The following two pages identify all of the working titles used in the Information Services Department.

For both charts the far left hand column identifies the payroll classification used for all positions.  The columns on both pages identify the working titles and layoff groups within each payroll classification.

1.         Working titles in the same group listed in boxes separated by a dashed line (- – – -) are flexibly staffed.  For example, in Layoff Group 1 (Programmer-Systems Analyst), the working titles of Programmer Analyst-Systems Analyst, Associate Programmer Analyst and Assistant Programmer Analyst, are flexibly staffed.  In the Layoff Group 2 (Systems Programmer), the working titles of Systems Programmer I and Systems Programmer II, are flexibly staffed.

Working titles in the same group but in boxes separated by solid lines are not flexibly staffed.  For example, in Layoff Group 4 (Data Base Analysis), the working title of Data Base Administrator is not flexibly staffed with the Data Base Analyst I/II.

  1. In the event of layoffs all positions within a box defined by solid lines are treated as the same classification.  For example, in Layoff Group 1 (Programmer-Systems Analyst), all staff in the working titles of Programmer Analyst-Systems Analyst, Associate Programmer Analyst and Assistant Programmer Analyst, would be on the same layoff list based on seniority.
  2. Bumping from one Layoff Group to another would only be allowed if the person has held prior status in the working title {or its predecessor classification(s)} of the second Layoff Group and has more seniority.  For example, a person in the Working Title of Operations Analyst II (Layoff Group 3) could bump into a working title of Associate Programmer Analyst (Layoff Group 1) only if s/he has held prior status as an Associate Programmer Analyst.
  3. Because of the impact of technology on positions in the Systems Engineer group, the layoff groups shall be reviewed no later than three months prior to the termination of the contract.
