PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF PERSONNEL


[ Filed November 12, 2009, 10:48 a.m. , effective December 15, 2009 ]


Effective Date of Rule: December 15, 2009.

Purpose: The definitions of "reassignment" found in WAC 357-01-275 and 357-19-165 does not coincide with WAC 357-19-170. WAC 357-19-170 is the rule which grants the authority for an employer to reassign an employee. WAC 357-19-170 says an appointing authority may reassign an employee to a different position within the same class (no mention of a different class with the same salary range maximum). The proposed rule amendments to WAC 357-01-275 and 357-19-165 will correct this.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 357-01-275 and 357-19-165.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapter 41.06 RCW.
