§ 2559. Lay-offs
If for any reason the lowest class in the classified service, or
the lowest class in a respective group of classes, as grouped by
the classification plan, should become overburdened with the number
of persons holding positions therein, and a reduction of personnel
becomes necessary, the reduction shall be made only by laying off
persons without pay. The order of removal shall begin with the
person youngest in point of his accumulated total service in the
departmental service and shall continue upward until all persons to
be removed have been laid off. Lay-offs shall be made from
positions only within the classes above set forth. The names of
persons laid off, the date, the class or position held and the
order in which such person was laid off shall be reported to the
board by the appointing authority. Thereupon, the board shall enter
such information upon the re-employment list applicable for the
class from which each person was removed.
