What is a Transfer?

  • A lateral transfer is a change of an employee from one position to another in the same class or in another class with the same salary range maximum.
  • An intra-unit transfer may occur without conducting an open recruitment.
  • Transfers may occur within a unit provided the position from which the employee is transferring has the same salary range maximum as the position to which the person is transferring.
  • An action that would result in a promotion without recruitment is not appropriate.
  • For represented positions, another position should be left open for recruitment as a result of the intra-unit transfer action.
  • The Unit Head is delegated the authority to approve demotion and transfer actions.
