The Intergovernmental Transfer Program is designed to result in a positive outcome for all parties involved. Some benefits for you are:
Employees Have the Opportunity to Make a Change- Employees with permanent civil service status can transfer to another jurisdiction, for personal or professional reasons, without a break in service.
Employees can transfer to ANY Civil Service Jurisdiction- Intergovernmental transfers can take place from and to any jurisdiction:
Individuals Facing Layoffs Can Transfer to a New Position- This program is highly beneficial for employees facing layoffs. Individuals can transfer to other jurisdictions within 1 year after the effective date of layoff. The impact of reductions-in-force can be minimized when such transfers are made as a pre-layoff action.
Program Allows State and Local agencies to reduce time and cost of recruitment and testing- Agencies can hire experienced employees that already hold permanent civil service status, resulting in less time and money spent in the recruiting and hiring process. Also, experienced employees will eliminate the need for initial training.
