§ 39.123  REASSIGNMENT; SALARY CHANGES.
   Those employees not represented by a collective bargaining unit are subject to the following provisions:
   (a)   Reassignment for employees applies to a personnel action where no actual vacancy exists but an employee's job classification and/or pay grade is changed. This personnel action will result from a management-initiated job audit or reorganization.
   (b)   When the pay grade for a classification is upgraded or if an employee is reassigned to a classification having a higher maximum or hourly rate of pay, the employee's salary shall:
      (1)   Go to the step with the salary amount in the new pay grade which is at least and closest to 3% over the salary amount received in the prior pay grade if the employee has not been performing the duties commensurate with their higher pay grade prior to their reassignment; or
      (2)   Go to the step in the new pay grade which is at least and closest to 5% over the salary amount received in the prior pay grade if the employee is, through a management-initiated audit, determined to have been performing duties commensurate with the higher pay grade prior to the reassignment.
   (c)   When an employee is reassigned to a job classification due to a management-initiated job audit or reorganization having the same maximum biweekly or hourly rate of pay, the employee's salary step rate of pay and the step anniversary date for future advancement shall remain the same.
   (d)   When the pay grade for a classification is downgraded or when an employee is reassigned to a job classification due to a management-initiated job audit or reorganization having a lower maximum biweekly or hourly rate of pay, the employee shall be placed into the salary step of the new pay grade which is next, lower than and closest to the salary amount received prior to the reassignment, and the step anniversary date for future advancement shall remain the same. When the employee's salary level, prior to reassignment, is greater than step 9 of the newly assigned pay grade, the employee's biweekly or hourly rate of pay shall be frozen as of the date of the reassignment. The employee's salary rate shall remain frozen until a time as step 9 of the pay grade assigned to the employee's classification is equal to or greater than the employee's frozen salary rate of pay. When that occurs, the employee shall be placed into step 9 of the new pay grade assigned to the employee's classification.
   (e)   If reassignment occurs and the employee is reassigned to a higher pay grade, the employee's anniversary date for future step advancement eligibility will be the effective date of the reassignment.
