1850(F) Voluntary Demotions
.110 Description and Legal Basis
.111 Voluntary demotions are herein defined as the movement of a permanent employee from a higher salary grade position to a lower salary grade position with the agreement of the employee. This includes those situations in which an employee agrees to a demotion in lieu of discipline, but does not include those demotions which are penalties explicitly imposed by the disciplinary process, nor those situations which occur because of reclassification or reallocation, nor the return of probationers to hold items.
.411 Where a voluntary demotion is intended, agencies should submit PR-75's with V DEMOTE as the appointment code. This code and the following procedures should not be confused with demotions which occur as a result of disciplinary action using the appointment code DEMOTE. [NYSTEP no longer contains or accepts a code for Voluntary Demotions. See your NYSTEP Manual.]
.413 Where a voluntary demotion via transfer occurs, an indication of whether or not the employee will serve a probationary period must also appear on the PR-75. Where a probationary period will be served, the appropriate probation end date should appear in Box 20 on the PR-75. Where no probationary period will be served "Probation waived" must appear in the REMARKS section.
