When a currently employed extra-help employee takes an extra-help opportunity in a lower-paying classification, that extra-help employee’s compensation shall be adjusted to the salary prescribed for the lower-paying classification, and the specific rate of pay within the range shall be determined by the Director of Human Resources, whose decision shall be final.

If an extra-help employee is hired into an extra-help classification they previously held, the extra-help employee shall be placed at the same step in that classification which the extra-help employee held last.
