For AFSCME-covered positions, the most senior employee holding the same classification will automatically be awarded the position. For Supervisory or Confidential positions, selected candidates will be invited to interview and the final candidate will have the opportunity to accept or reject the position offer.

For positions outside the employee's current classification, the Promotion, Transfer, or Voluntary Demotion bid form should be used. It is recommended the employee update their Application for Employment prior to submitting the bid form. Selected candidates will be invited to interview and the final candidate will have the opportunity to accept or reject the position offer.

NOTICE: Please be advised that a promotion, transfer or voluntary demotion between departments may result in a payout of any compensatory time earned at the discretion of the receiving department.
