The Bumping Process

Share This

For clarification, the bumping should work as follows when an initial notice is given:

  1. Must hit least senior in your job title in your agency; no other option if this exists.
  2. Otherwise, or the person impacted by #1 gets the following options:
    1. Statewide Displacement in job title (avoiding any Key Person)
    2. Bump down in job series in agency
    3. Bump in agency using comparable classes (from Comparability Table)
    4. Accept layoff
  3. Those impacted by #2a-2c can then choose:
    1. Bump down in job series in agency of layoff
    2. Bump in agency of layoff using comparable classes (from Comparability Table)
    3. Accept layoff
  4. Those impacted by #3a & 3b
    1. Bump down in job series in agency of layoff
    2. Bump in agency of layoff using comparable classes (from Comparability Table)

Initial notice gives 6 weeks before the impact takes place.
If you are touched by the bumping/displacing process, there is a 4 week period before the impact.

Only 1 person (typically the initial layoff) has the option to laterally displace statewide, all others after that can only bump down within the agency of the initial layoff notice.

Lateral Displacement: salary, vacation, sick time, seniority, and job title all remain the same but will begin work at a new agency, there is no “driving distance” exemption .  Key Person list can determine if a person is skipped for purposes of lateral displacement.
Bumping: Can choose to bump down within job series or select a comparable title from the Comparability Table .  Accruals stay the same, salary will be adjusted to a comparable salary in the new job title.  Bumping could also result in moving to a new location, there is no “driving distance” exemption.
