A probationary or permanent employee who has resigned in good standing or accepted a voluntary demotion may, within 2 years following the effective date of the resignation or voluntary demotion, request that the Human Resources Director place their name on the reinstatement eligible list for any classification for which they are qualified. Additionally, employees who occupy positions which the Department Head has determined are at risk of being eliminated may be placed on appropriate reinstatement lists prior to the anticipated date of layoff. This list may be considered by department heads in addition to either the promotional eligible or general lists but cannot take precedence over the department reemployment or general reemployment eligible lists.
