(A)   Preferred reemployment eligibility lists contain the names of former covered employees who have been laid off and who are eligible for reemployment without competitive examination, for positions of the same classification in which the employee last held prior to layoff.
   (B)   A separate preferred reemployment eligibility list shall be created for each classification in which covered employees are laid off.
   (C)   The names of former employees on a preferred reemployment eligibility list shall be placed on the list in the order of layoff. If more than one employee has the same layoff date, the names of these persons shall be placed on the list under the same number ranking in alphabetical order.
   (D)   A preferred reemployment eligibility list shall have a continuous life and the name of each former employee shall remain on the appropriate list for up to one year from the date the layoff became effective or, if the employee was on the preferred reemployment eligibility list on August 1, 1986, until August 1, 1987. An eligible’s name will be removed from the list when a department makes an offer of full-time employment to that eligible, regardless of whether that offer is accepted or rejected.
