4.5 Other Procedural Implications

Manual: Classification Plan Management

Subsection: Specialized Positions

  1. Positions for which specialty factors have been approved shall be reviewed in accordance with Section 2.2 of the Classification Procedures Manual, at least once every three years, to insure that such specialized requirements continue to exist. This review will be subject to audit.
  2. A request for a specialty factor will not be authorized in instances that will lead to the displacement of an incumbent from their current position.
  3. Individuals employed with a defined area of specialization cannot be displaced in the layoff process by someone who does not possess the defined area of specialization.
  4. Through the utilization of specialty factors within standard classification plan management protocols, a reemployment register must take into account not only the seniority status of the laid off employee, but also must capture the certifications or specializations possessed by the employee at the time of layoff.
