Layoff Planning


The Layoff/Reduction in Time process must be completed for any percentage reduction in time, or a layoff of a career position. A Layoff/Reduction in Time occurs within the layoff unit, is based on those in the same title code, and is determined by inverse order of seniority. Exceptions to the layoff order may be considered when a less senior employee possesses special skills, knowledge, or abilities that are critical to the operations of the department.  To identify the layoff unit affected, contact the ANR Staff Personnel Unit representative at
