A. Promotions.

1. Process. If a qualified employee applies for an open position, at the discretion of the City Administrator, the City may opt to promote the employee to the position and not recruit for the position. The City Administrator may, at his or her option, require the employee to take any appropriate tests and go through an interview or interviews and a background check prior to deciding whether to promote the employee to the new position.

2. Effect of Promotions on Salary. When an employee is promoted to a position having a higher salary range, the employee’s salary step shall be adjusted to the minimum step of the new position. However, if the employee’s current salary step is higher than the minimum step for the new position, adjustment will be made to the next highest step which exceeds the employee’s current step.

3. Promotional Probationary Period. Employees who are promoted to a new position must serve a new probationary period of six (6) months in the new position.

B. Demotions and Reassignments. When an employee is demoted for cause to a position with a lower pay grade, the employee’s pay will be reduced to a pay step within the lower pay grade. When an employee is reassigned for administrative purposes through no fault of the employee, if the employee’s reassigned position is in a lower pay grade, normally, the employee’s pay will be changed to the step in the pay grade for the employee’s new position that is closest to the employee’s current rate of pay. If the employee’s reassigned position is in a higher pay grade, normally, the employee’s pay will be changed to the closest step in the pay grade for the employee’s new position which is not lower than the employee’s current rate of pay. Subject to approval of the City Administrator, the salary of an employee who is reassigned to a position with a lower pay grade may be held at the employee’s current rate of pay, without adjustments for cost-of-living increases, until the employee’s rate of pay falls within the pay grade for the employee’s reassigned position.
