Demotion to a Position in a Lower Salary Grade

At times, staff may be reassigned to a position in a lower salary grade. This may occur in order to find a more appropriate fit between the employee's capabilities and the skills and expectations of a different position, or because the employee chooses to take on a position with fewer responsibilities.

When an employee is reassigned to a position in a lower salary grade, either voluntarily or involuntarily, the salary will be reduced, based on the criteria below, to reflect the responsibilities of the new position.
