25 NCAC 01I .2004 DEMOTION OR REASSIGNMENT
Demotion or reassignment is a change in status resulting from assignment of a position to a lower classification level. It may result from the choice of the employee, reallocation of a position, inefficiency in performance, unacceptable conduct, reduction‑in‑force, or better utilization of individual resources. If the change results from inefficiency in performance or as a disciplinary action, the action is considered a demotion. If the change results from a mutually agreed upon arrangement, the action is considered a reassignment. When an employee in permanent, probationary or trainee status is demoted, it is expected that he will possess the minimum qualifications required for the new class at the respective level of appointment.
