Classified Employees – Reemployment – No Claim to Continuing Permanent Status Unless Rehired in Same Class/Grade as Previous Position

When classified school district employees are laid off due to lack of work/funds, they are subject to being rehired within 39 months.  If rehired, they resume their former employment status.  However, if they are rehired in a different position, the clock, in essence, restarts with respect to gaining permanent status.
