This memorandum supercedes and replaces Advisory Memorandum #96-01, “Transaction code for permanent employees who refuse a reassignment” in SPMM section 2800. Please remove that Advisory Memorandum from your manual.
T0: Department and Agency Personnel, Human Resource,
and Affirmative Action Offices
Permanent or contingent permanent (CP) employees who refuse reassignment to positions in counties other than current work locations are separated from employment. To date, the transactions separating those permanent or CP employees who refuse reassignment have been submitted to NYSTEP as resignations. Effective on May 12, 2005 (beginning of Institutional Payroll 4), these transactions are to be coded:
We shall continue to grant reemployment list rights to employees who refuse reassignment, provided the employees meet §§80/80-a CSL criteria.
You may address questions to Employment Records at (518) 457-3780.
Note: Please add a copy of this Advisory Memorandum to your copy of the Guidelines for the Administration of Reductions in Force, or annotate page 33 of your printed Guidelines with this new transaction code. Our online versions of the Guidelines have been updated. Also, please save a copy of this memo with your NYSTEP/PER User Manual.
