Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill provides that if a Chief Forest Ranger (Chief) is not reappointed, he or she has the right to be restored to the position from which the Chief was promoted or to a position equivalent in salary grade, without impairment of personnel status or the loss of seniority, retirement or other rights to which uninterrupted service in the previous position would have entitled them. In the event a Chief is not reappointed and there are no vacant positions eqivalent to the position held prior to promotion to Chief, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry would need to demote or lay off (bump) another employee to make a position available for the former Chief. Assuming the employee demoted or laid off is at the same salary level as the returning former Chief was prior to promotion to Chief, there would be no net increase in cost to the department from this bill.
