Please consult with Human Resources prior to completing this request.

Notice of Reassignment and Updated Position Description

At least 14 days prior to the effective date of the reassignment, the employee must be provided with:

  • Notice of Reassignment (Memo from HEERA Manager to Employee)
  • Updated Position Description. 

Sample - Notice of Reassignment memo

According to the CSUEU and APC contracts, an employee has the option to voluntarily waive the 14 day notice with submission of a signed memo.

  • Sample - 14 Day Waiver Memo

The lead supervisor and HEERA Manager should sign the Position Description.  The employee will sign the updated Position Description in Human Resources at the time they sign their appointment letter.

An employee may be temporarily reassigned to a lateral position when the duties are consistent with their current job classification.  A salary increase will not be given in this situation.

  • An employee who received a salary increase from a temporary reassignment is not eligible for an additional salary increase if the employee obtains the position through a recruitment.

The length of a temporary reassignment is limited in duration and is deterred by the classification’s applicable bargaining unit.

  • Unit 2, 5, 7, & 9 classifications:  6 months; may be extended up to an additional 12 months for a total of 18 months.
  • Unit 4 classification:  6 months; may be extended up to an additional 6 months for a total of 12 months.

An employee may be temporarily reassigned to a position in a higher classification when he/she is required to perform duties inconsistent with his/her current classification.

Upon completion of the temporary reassignment, the employee shall return to the classification and assignment they were working in prior to the temporary reassignment with the appropriate salary.

  • If a temporary reassignment is for a period of more than 6 months and the reassignment is from a non-exempt to an exempt position, the current Compensatory Time Off (CTO) balance must be paid out (or used) to the employee.  This applies to CSUEU Units 2, 5, 7, & 9 classifications only.

When moving to a higher classification, a typical salary increase of 5% or the minimum of the new salary range, whichever is greater.
