f MURSBAY, APRIL 27,1950 Status of Fired U. S. Employes • ^"*~ One of 4 Alternatives Possible By JAMES MAR LOW VVASHINGTON,-^Pi-The government worker has some ii|>s and downs. Ho ran always bo fired, of course, for good cause. But he may also lose his job for other reasons—for instance, if his- job is abolished, or if Congress lots his agency's money run out and some people have to be fired. What happens to him depends on four things: The kind of a job he holds (whether he's temporary or permanent); whether he's a veteran; what hir, seniority over younger workers is; and how efficient, he is. In a brief story like this, all the details can't be given. But this will explain in outline what happens to a government employe when his agency goes out of business or its funds are cut. It's a rule that any worker about to be dinmissed must be given ut least 30 days' notice. The temporary employe—that Is, one who took the job with the understanding the appointment was for a limited period—can be dropped without more ado than the 30 days' notice. I3ut in the case of a permanent employe — typically, one who qualified under civil service examination for a permanent job— an effort is made to place him in some other job, if his agency is to remain in existence wh'ile his branch or office is closed down. The first effort is to find another job for him in the same agency and in the same locality. If he has veteran preference— that is, if he is entitled to preference on the basis of military service—then he must, be considered for jobs held by employes who do not have veteran preference. If no job is available within the locality, the dismissed man may ask to be considered for jobs in the agency at other localities which are held by temporary em- ployes. But suppose he can't find any job in the agency. Then he's given 30 days' notice. What happens then depends on how the individual agency handles such a problem: 1. He may be allowed to work the full 30 days and then get paid in cash for the unused portion of his annual leave, or vacation, which amounts to 26 days. < 2. The agency may require the employe to take fiis vacation during the 30 days' notice period. If the employe already has used all his l.eave, the agency can place him on vacation without pay during the notice period. But something else comes in here: A permanent employe who's dismissed and can't immediately find another government Opening to which he can transfer, has a priority for a job in his former agency for one year. This is what the priority means: He gets the call for another job over some newcomer looking for a job in the agency he left—that is for any job the dismissed man can fill. But there's something more; A permanent, but dismissed government worker is eligible for reinstatement to any job, in any agency, for which he's qualified. But—if he's had less than five years' service in the government, he has this eligibility for reinstatement only for as many years PS he worked for the government. Once this eligibility period is up —if he's an under-five-years man, he must again take and pass a civil service examination if he wants to go back to work for the government. If he's had five years' or more experience in permament. government work, there's no time limit on his eligibility for reinstatement without the necessity o'f taking another civil service examnation. The Info'rmation in this story comes from the civil service commission itself.
